I mean, I did start this Facebook page, despite my fears of being laughed at, not to mention that Youtube video I made … Another risk I took was to make this chocolate tart for the breaking-bread experience.

Mamool is a childhood treat my Egyptian granny used to make. There are many variations to this delicious treat and I feel like I have tried them all. I have also played around with this recipe and made it with zero sugar thinking that the dates would be sweet enough, they are NOT.
