I've been dreaming about an outrageous number of sweet recipes lately due to the arrival of our sweet wee bebe Isabella and her love for food at dinner time leaving the hubby to prepare the majority of our evening meals. I have two more wholesome sweet recipes to share with you soon too!
However, savoury dishes aside these little 'snickers' morsels are far too delicious to describe – best you make them to find out! They are the perfect bite-sized treat for adults and children alike. I can’t wait until Isabella is old enough to help me make these and old enough for us to make a huge batch for birthday party fare!
Wholesome 'Snickers' Bites
Ingredients – makes 8 (simply adjust the quantities below to suit your numbers)
8 Medjool dates
8 tsp Pic’s Crunchy Peanut Butter
12 squares >70% dark chocolate
Line a baking tray with baking paper and melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water until glossy and smooth.
Meanwhile gently tear open the dates and remove the pips.
Stuff a teaspoon of peanut butter into each date and enclose as much as you can by gently placing the date back together.
Using two forks, place each peanut butter stuffed date into the bowl of melted chocolate, making sure each date is fully coated in chocolate. Place on the lined baking tray and continue until all of the dates are coated in the melted chocolate.
Place the coated dates into the fridge for at least 1 hour to set.
Store in the fridge in a sealed container until ready to eat.
