I absolutely love chocolate, so when I discovered that it was possible to make with a meagre three ingredients I had to give it a go. Admittedly it took me a while to locate the cocoa butter, but the other two ingredients, dates and cocoa powder can be found in most supermarkets.
I have to say though this recipe sounds like it could be thrown together in a matter of minutes it took me quite a while. The main problem was the dates, they are so difficult to process and after filling the kitchen sink with sticky mini and major food processing bowls, chopping boards and forks, I finally had my pureed dates. The next difficulty was folding them into the wet chocolate mixture, eventually, after more messy bowls and appliances I stuck the lot in a zip lock bag and mushed it together with my hands. I then left it to partially solidify in the bag before rolling out between two pieces of grease proof paper, before cutting.
I hope I'm not completely putting people off making this, but I do think you may as well know the difficulties before getting stuck in. Next time I'm going to try to buy the dates all ready processed. This would save a world of time and trouble. Or alternatively buy extremely soft dates, I thought mine were pretty soft but judging the trouble I had, they can't have been nearly soft enough.
The Chocolate is delicious however, plus it is a guilt free alternative, been sugar free!
