Date treat from heaven
This will be the most delicious healthy treat you'll ever have and the easiest treat you'll ever make while impressing your guests with this wonderful display.
All you need is dates, Chocolate dark or white, I found the dates are really sweet so I used dark chocolate.
As for the topping , your imagination is the best place for ideas.
I used :
1/4 cup Rose petals,
1/4 cup desiccated coconut,
grated orange rind from one orange
1/4 cup crushed hazelnuts,
1/4 crushed pistachio nuts
1/4 crushed almonds.
200g melted chocolate
Fill small bowls with topping and set a side.
Line a tray with baking paper on your kitchen bench set a side
Put the chocolate into a small microwave safe bowl, and microwave on high for 15 seconds bursts stirring the chocolate every time until chocolate has completely melted and there are no lumps. (it took me 45 seconds in total)
Dip the dates, one at a time, into the chocolate and let the excess drip off before dipping them into the topping and laying them on the tray lined with baking paper.
Place in the fridge , when ready to serve transfer chocolate covered dates onto a serving dish and serve chilled or at room temperature. until ready to serve.
