Blend cashews and coconut until smooth. Add other ingredients and blend again until really smooth, scraping down edges as required. Spread on top of base. Put back in the freezer for 1 hour while you make the top.
If coconut oil is liquid, blend all ingredients. If not, then melt coconut oil in a saucepan on low heat, add Rice Malt and Cacao and mix well. Pour on top of filling. Put back in the freezer for an hour or preferably overnight.
