These are a great snack if you are on a diet, because they are sweet and nutty and chocolatey BUT you can't eat more than a couple at a time because of the results.
Step 1: Ingredients
150g slivered almonds
100g cooking chocolate
saucepan and bowl for chocolate
frypan for almonds
plate, spoon, knife for dates
Step 2: Roast
The slivered almonds come raw, but taste much better roasted. They go from looking uncooked to overcooked really quickly so it's good to keep watch on them. Cook the almonds first so that they have time to cool down.
Step 3: Cut
Cut and depit the dates.
Step 4: Melt
Melt the chocolate in the bowl over water boiling in the saucepan.
Step 5: Fill
When the almonds are cool, fill the dates.
Step 6: Dip
After squishing the sides of the date together, dip them into the melted chocolate. (Thanks to Kerrie for taking these photos)
Step 7: Finished
Here they are just finished. I let them cool before putting them in the container. They should last a couple of weeks without refrigerating, but they never last that long.
