Firstly, let me tell you that i haven’t eaten chocolate or bread for over 2 weeks… um… except today i had that chocolate craving. You know the one you get that just doesn’t go away and no matter how many other things you eat you just can’t ignore it? Right, well, i had that ALL DAY!

If you want to make this recipe now then you need to go and get 8 medjool dates and put them in the fridge (maybe even the freezer) as they need to be cold – they NEED to be!

Let me apologise in advance that there are no pictures for this one. It’s probably not the prettiest thing to photograph anyway, but it’s chocolate and delicious caramelly dates, it’s totally good! Trust me 😉

 

CHOCOLATE COATED DATES

Ingredients:

8 Medjool Dates (cold – either kept in the fridge or quickly blasted in the freezer, but not frozen)

4 Tblspns Coconut Oil (either slightly thick or solid-ish, but liquid will also work)

1 tspn Raw Cacao (you can use more but i was trying to be sparing)

1 tspn Maple Syrup (again, you can use more but with less cacao i needed less sweetness, and the dates are sweet too)

In a small bowl mix coconut oil, cacao and maple.

Cut cold dates in half and remove seeds.

Stir halved dates into chocolate mixture. This will simulaneously mix in the maple and start to set the coconut oil – leaving you with chocolate covered dates!

Eat and Enjoy!!

p.s. try not to eat them all!! I have saved some for tomorrow… and i also did some dried figs too 😀
