I've waited for-EVER to try out these delicious treats (Chocolate Covered) Katie has been talking about for a while now, and I can't tell you why! They are phenomenally tasty AND easy to make -- is there a better combo??!? I think not!
I started with, um...maybe 10 dates (I used fancy medjool) and a handful of roasted, salted peanuts -- ok, I could have been better at measuring my ingredients this time.
After blending this, I added 2 Tbsp cocoa and blended some more.
This is what it all looked like blended:
Looks kinda like dirt but it does not taste like it at all which is great news if you don't care for the way dirt tastes.
I rolled 'em up into balls and was hurrying up so much cause I was hungry that I spilled cocoa
Yes, woe is me, cause the spill only served to delay my food-to-mouth application time.
And -- voilà!!! Who could resist these?????
Not I! (*37.9 seconds later)
Try them and learn for yourselves how the size of these is inversely proportional to their deliciousness which is, in turn, inversely proportionate to their life spam. =| Sad fate for them, lucky for the rest of us! ;)
