Introduction: SWEET DREAMS

Sweet nutty bites made out of dates and nuts, served with a creamy mango dip. I am sure you will love it. Do hit the ' I made it ' button once you try it!

Step 1: INGREDIENTS

FOR BITES (refer to picture 1) :
1. One cup ripe dates
2. Half cup cashews
3. Half cup almonds

FOR DIP (refer to picture 2)
1. One cup cashews
2. One cup ripe mango

Step 2: MASH DATES

Mash / grind dates preferably with a hand grinder.

Step 3: DATES × NUTS

Grind cashews and almonds in a dry mixer/grinder ( picture 1).

Separate out the bigger pieces of nuts from the finer particles ( picture 2 & 3).

Mix togather the big nut pieces and dates mash, with your hands to make a nice stiff dough kind of batter (picture 4).

Step 4: SHAPE

Take small chunks of the prepared dough/batter and shape them with your hands or cookie cutters as you wish (picture 1).

Since the dough is quite sticky it wont take much effort to coat these bites/cookies with the fine cashew+almond particles (picture 2).

Step 5: DIP

Blend mango chunks and cashews. Add water accordingly to adjust the consistency. Yummy dreamy creamy mango dip is ready to be served with your sweet bites/cookies. Do not add sugar to this mix as it is introduced to nullify the extra sweetness of dates. So enjoy this dip in its mild sweet flavour!

Step 6: SERVE

Refridgerate both the items for a while. Serve the sweet bites with dreamy creamy dip, chilled :)
