Chocolate Coconut Toffee Bars

These have the taste of chocolate, crunch from the corn flakes, and chewiness from the dates.  What a great combination !

2 Tbsp molasses
2 cups corn flake cereal, crushed
1/2 cup  Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 cup chopped dates
3 Tbsp almond milk

Blend dates and almond milk in blender until smooth.  I keep some date chunks left - it gives the bars a chewier texture.

Slightly melt the  chocolate chips in the microwave.  I still had some pieces of the chocolate chips.

Then combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Press into an 8x8 pan and store in fridge.

My favorite food processor is the KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
