Servings 8 (Bars)
- 1/2 cup cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted (we used half cocoa, half cacao for a mixture of taste)
- 2 ½ Tbsp tahini (DIVIDED)
- 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil (if oil-free, sub extra tahini and play with texture as wanted)
- 3 Tbsp uncooked and/or native honey (if vegan, sub maple syrup, however use barely much less because it’s sweeter and thinner in texture)
- 1 wholesome pinch sea salt
- 5-6 medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped
To a small mixing bowl add sifted cacao or cocoa powder, 2 Tbsp (30 g) tahini (alter quantity if altering default variety of servings), melted coconut oil, uncooked honey, salt, and about half of your chopped dates. Gently stir with a spoon to mix right into a thick paste. NOTE: If doubling recipe, you’ll be able to strive combining your elements in a small meals processor. In any other case, a mixing bowl is best / quickest for making a single batch.
Relying in your tahini consistency, kind of sweetener, and in case you use oil, chances are you’ll have to play together with your ratios. If too skinny, add extra cacao or cocoa powder. If too thick, skinny with extra honey or oil. You’re going for a fudge-like dough with some tackiness to it.
Subsequent, plop half the combination onto one aspect of a bit of parchment paper, fold the parchment paper over, and use a rolling pin to roll right into a flat bar (~1/4 to 1/2 inch thick). Then unfold parchment paper and sprinkle the remaining chopped dates over the rolled-out chocolate, and drizzle the remaining 1/2 Tbsp of tahini over the dates. Add the remaining fudge combination on prime of the dates and tahini, fold the parchment paper again over the chocolate, and roll once more to create a date and tahini sandwich! As soon as the highest layer of fudge is pretty even, elevate up the parchment and fold in any uncovered edges (you wish to disguise the tahini and dates)! Roll as soon as extra to even out the bar, and straighten the sides with a spatula (if desired).
Take pleasure in your bar as is (fudgy type!), roll into “truffles,” or switch to the freezer to agency up for 20-Half-hour (we desire ours chilly).
To serve, minimize bar(s) into squares or desired shapes. We additionally suggest dusting with slightly cocoa or cacao powder right now to forestall sticking. They’re agency when refrigerated or frozen, however the longer they sit out at room temperature, the softer they’ll grow to be.
Retailer leftovers coated within the fridge for as much as 1-2 weeks, or within the freezer for 1 month or extra.
