To make the date caramel, place the dates, cashew butter, rice malt syrup, and vanilla extract in a food processor and process for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.

Add caramel mixture to the muffin holes over the cacao base leaving enough room for the rice cakes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Top each muffin hole with mini rice cake.  Remove from silicone mould, flip and serve with rice cake as the base.
