I loved this delicious afternoon snack, it is addictive. The dates give the sweetness, the dark cholate gives the bitter tone while the walnut gives it a great crunch.
20 soft dates or 400g soft dates
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup puffed brown rice
2 tsp vanilla extract
80g dark chocolate
To make dried dates soft. Soak dates in hot water for 15 minutes and drain.
While the dates are soaking, line a loaf tin with baking paper, make sure the sides are longer . it will be easier to remove the slice.
Add the dates, peanut butter, vanilla extract and process until it’s a paste.
Place the paste in a bowl and add the rice puffs and walnuts and mix.
Add the mixture into the loaf tin and press with a spoon (make spoon wet if mixture is sticky) or your wet hand.
Melt the dark chocolate and pour over the mixture.
Place in the fridge for twenty minutes.
Remove from tin by lifting longer side of baking paper and cut into slices
