BM #85 Week 1 Day 3 - 

These simple and Chocolate Covered Dates are an easy way to get the kids include dates in their diet. My kids are sold just because of the chocolate in there!

When I was browsing a middle eastern store in our neighborhood, I happened to spot a box of these stuffed dates and it looked so inviting. I looked at the ingredients and decided it was easy and can be made at home. When I googled to make sure, there were a flood of recipes and that reassured me :).

Ingredients - 

Pitted Dates 20 nos
Almonds handful
Chocolate Chips 1/4 cup

Method Of Preparation -

Soak the almonds in hot water for 15-20 minutes. Remove the peels and grind the peeled almonds into fine powder.

Stuff the almond powder into the dates and set aside.

In a double boiler/microwave melt the chocolate.

Dip each stuffed date into the chocolate and set aside in a ice tray so the chocolate can set.

Refrigerate the chocolate covered stuffed dates for about an hour.

Remove and enjoy a guilt free dessert as a snack.
