Dates and chocolate

6 posts in this topic

It is date season here in the desert and I have become obsessed with them, particularly eating them with dark chocolate. I am not much of a candy maker, but hope Kerry or others might have a suggestion for making a simple, unadorned date truffle or something else with chocolate (even a cake) that might make a nice gift. I have access to about 6 or 7 varieties of freshly harvested fruit, from my favority caramel-y "Golds" to the giant medjool. Thanks.

You can also make a date puree, use that in any pastry or chocolate that you would with another fruit puree.

Popular in some of the older books I have are dates stuffed with almond paste then candied or half dipped in chocolate.

Oh dear god. The deliciousness. The sheer, sheer deliciousness of this....I don't think I can take it!

(the chocolate version anyway :laugh: )
