For this week’s family dinner night dessert I modified last week’s recipe (rainbow paddle pop slice) and added a couple of flavours. Chocolate and coffee – a match made in heaven!
Step 3 of the original recipe was to split the cashew cream into small bowls and colour into desired colours using natural food dyes. This week, instead of using food colouring, in one bowl I added coffee (1 tablespoon decaf coffee granules mixed with hot water) and in the other bowl I added chocolate (2 teaspoons of cacao powder mixed with hot water). The third bowl was just cashew cream.
Then I repeated the steps of the original recipe.
Step 4 – Using a spoon, spoon the colours randomly over the base until you’ve used all of the colours up.
Step 5 – Using a knife, swirl the colours around. Give the whole loaf tin a shake to flatten the slice. Freeze the slice overnight. Slice with a hot, wet knife and enjoy! Keep it in the freezer and just defrost slices as you need. Enjoy!
