Warning: Its quite possible that they could inspire acts of love.

method:

  • First make the brownie layer: Mix together the brown rice flour, ground almonds, cacao powder in a bowl. Melt the almond butter and maple syrup then pour into the dry ingredients along with the vanilla and almond milk. Mix to combine then press into heart-shaped molds or lined tupperware box/tin and press in with your hands to cover the base evenly.
  • Mix together the desiccated coconut and beetroot in a bowl then melt the coconut oil and maple syrup and mix together until the mixture comes together in a sticky mixture.
  • Spread this over the base and pack in tightly. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  • Make the white chocolate by carefully melting the cacao butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water until completely melted then remove from the heat. Whisk in the cashew butter, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  • Pop the hearts out and place on a wire rack then drizzle over your homemade white vegan chocolate over each and scatter freeze-dried raspberries. Allow to chill a little more then you're ready to serve and enjoy!
