No Bake Brownie Base

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup cacao powder sifted
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 cups raw walnuts
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Ganache

Black Icing

  • ½ cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon water additional as needed
  • 2 capsules activated charcoal powder or black food coloring
  • 6 Alter Eco Salted Caramel Truffles cut in half
  • Candy Eyes


  • Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper
  • In a large bowl, add almond flour and sifted cacao powder and mix until no clumps are left
  • In a blender add maple syrup, walnuts, vanilla, and salt and blend until smooth. About 2 minutes
  • Pour your maple walnut mixture into almond flour and cacao powder mix and combine until a dough like mixture forms and ingredients are well combined with no flour/powder left
  • Add combined mixture into your lined pan and press flat with your hand/back of a spatula until leveled and smooth
  • Place into freezer to set for 10 minutes while you make the ganache
  • In a saucepan bring your coconut milk to a very light simmer on low heat
  • Add your chopped chocolate and let it sit 5-8 minutes without stirring on low heat
  • Once you notice your chocolate beginning to melt, start to combine with a spatula and remove from heat so it doesn’t split. Combine until ganache is smooth and silky
  • Remove brownies from freezer and slice into 12 bars
  • Coat each bar entirely in the ganache and place Alter Eco Salted Caramel Truffle (cut side up) in the top left corner of your brownie
  • Place back into freezer until set (about 20 minutes) and make the black icing by adding all icing ingredients into a small bowl until smooth and rich in color
  • Add black icing to a zip lock bag and cut a small corner of the bag to easily squeeze the icing out
  • Remove bars from freezer and decorate as you want and place in freezer to just harden the black icing! Put a dot of icing on back of candy eye and place on top of the Alter Eco Truffle and enjoy!
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days
