I love easy slice recipes and this luxurious Chocolate Vanilla Slice is one of my favorites. Featuring an easy base of desiccated coconut and cashews topped with a smooth chocolate ganache made from coconut cream and dark chocolate!


I have a mid-week delight for you and it’s in the form of chocolate ganache! Chocolate Ganache Vanilla Slice, not your traditional vanilla slice by any means but these two classic flavours never go out of style.

Slices are fun and easy to prepare and this recipe is completely irresistible. A quick base layer made with cashews, coconut and vanilla. The topping? A 2-ingredient dairy free chocolate ganache, ohh yess. Would you have ever guessed that a luscious, velvety smooth, dairy free chocolate ganache would require only 2-ingredients? Well it’s true and I hope you’re scheduling this slice into your week as we speak.


There is a lot of vanilla in this recipe but that’s a good thing because vanilla is timeless, glorious and creates a fabulous base flavour. Vanilla and chocolate are two of the most classic flavours we know and for good reason. We’re keeping things really simple with this recipe but you wouldn’t think it’s so easy when taking bite.

This dairy free chocolate ganache recipe is going to blow you away and whoever else enjoys this slice, you best be prepared to be inundated with more requests to make it 😉

Enjoy friends!
