  2. In a small pot melt the caramel ingredients on a medium low heat for about 3 minutes (the maple, oil, almond butter, and vanilla). Make sure to stir while everything melts to keep from burning. Let cool for a couple of minutes then pour over the top of the shortbread crust. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set let the caramel set.
  3. While the caramel is setting, begin making the chocolate by melting the coconut oil in a small sauce pot first. Stir in the maple, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Make sure there are no remaining lumps, then remove from heat and cool.
  4. After the caramel has firmed up you can pour the chocolate over the top, spread with the back of a spoon to even out the top, then cover and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes until firm.

Recipe Notes

Before pouring the chocolate over the top of the caramel you want to make sure that the chocolate isn't too hot still or you'll end up melting the caramel which and you won't get those individual layers. Store these in the refrigerator.
