Healthy Klondike Bar (Dairy-free, Paleo)~Review

Once I saw a post on how to make a HEALTHY Klondike bar, by Megan from Detoxinista, I HAD to try it!!!! There is VERY few ingredients and I happen to have them all! Could it be true that you can make ice cream out of mainly cashews!?! 
I tried making it the same day and I had to share it with you all because it is THAT good!!!

Megan's recipe is found on her page, just click the picture below and it will take you there!
Here is my review of this recipe!
First of all, this is definitely a MUST TRY!!! My only complaint is the waiting between processes to get to try your yummy dessert! If you were going to make these for dessert for you family, you would have to start in the morning.
First step is to soak your cashews for two hours.
Then you blend the Vanilla ice cream ingredients together and pour them into a loaf pan lined with parchment and freeze for 4-6 hours.
I found it tough to line the pan with parchment without some folds! I knew this was going to mess up how my ice cream was going to freeze but once you get to the step of cutting the ice cream into squares it really doesn't matter too much! Below you can see that my ice cream rectangle isn't perfect!

Another thing Megan did was cut her ice cream into 8 squares, I actually cut my ice cream up into smaller pieces because I would mainly be feeding my children and I didn't think one serving needed to be so big! HOWEVER, if you do this make a little bit more chocolate because you won't have enough to cover the surfaces!
 I am amazed that you can make chocolate syrup with simply coconut oil, cocoa powder, and maple syrup!!! Have any of you had trouble melting chocolate and getting the perfect consistency!?! With this recipe you don't have that problem AT ALL!!!! I have to say, this chocolate is so good and easy to make that I would make it by itself! You can use this as a healthy version of chocolate hardening shell on top of a sundae or scoop of ice cream on a cone!!! Or how about chocolate covered strawberries!?! 
 This is how I covered my ice cream bites! I just set it in the bowl and spooned it over the top until it was covered!
 *One last tip! Just like you have to set out a gallon of ice cream to soften before you scoop it…take these out of the freezer and let them sit few minutes or the "ice cream" is really tough.
This is especially true for giving it to little ones.
You can also cut it up into bite size pieces for really little ones, to cut down on the mess!
