    was given this recipe and bloody hell its gawjus

    10 pitted dates
    2 tsp dark chocolate powder as close to 100% as you can get (I found green and blacks)
    small pack macademia nuts

    mix everything together in a whizzer and put into a glass dish and refridgerate

    OMG keep it away from yourself as long as possible cos once you start eating that is it

    I doubled the mix and put in a couple of tablespoons of hemp....really nutty

    My mother who has more patience than me rolled them up and then coated them in dessicated coconut :clap: :crazy:

    Like the sound of that, I'd probably use mixed nuts though, I find macadamias too much on their own.

    Hi Cavelioness, :)

    You are very naughty for giving this recipe to people that cannot resist such a chocy treat.
    There is no way on earth I am going to try your "gawjus" things today. ( no dates )

    But tomorrow is a definite date with macadamia nuts, choc powder and your mums coconut idea.
    my wife and daughter will love them, if there's any left that is.

    Roy :)

    I use macadamia due to the fact of the carb content mixed nuts or maybe toasted almonds crushed would work just as well :clap:
