Draft tool

Hi everyone,
I hope this is no stupid question, but I don't manage to get rid of red circled part, when using draft.
I would want to angle the surface in the front (just like on the picture), but without automatically extending it over the surface in the back. How is that possible?
(Note: both blocks should remain just one part)
Thanks for your help,

    Try extruding both of the blocks as separate parts, applying the draft to the closest block there. Then use the Composite Part or Boolean feature to merge the two parts.

    Alternatively, you can split the top face using the Split feature and apply the draft to only that face. Make sure to de-select "tangent propagation" in the Draft feature.

    Thanks for your answers.
    @BrendanM, I was hoping to avoid making separate extrudes, but I might have to settle for this solution. Thanks anyway

    @timo_schmid, I think that @Dan_Kane's solution is more elegant, and leaner! Glad to help out any time.
