Recipe: Choc Peanut Date Bars
Makes approx 8 small bars
1 ½ cups chopped dates
¾ cup roasted peanuts
Preheat oven to 175º and spread your peanuts nuts on a tray. Roast the peanuts for approx 5 minutes until the flavour comes through (be careful not to burn). See our guide to roasting nuts here
Meanwhile, blitz the dates in a food processor until they are chopped finely and begin to clump together.
Once the peanuts are ready, add them to the food processor and pulse through to combine – you want them to remain a bit chunky but well incorporated.
Using your hands form flattened sausage-shaped bars.
Melt the chocolate couverture in a shallow bowl and once melted, dip the peanut date bars to fully coat. Place them on a lined baking sheet or plate and allow to cool fully.
Note: if you are using skinned peanuts, you will find the peanut skins start to come away when roasting, but they will stick to the dates during mixing so don’t bother trying to remove them!
