So, I've been writing about the downsides of refined sugar for a long time now and if you've read my book you know I am something of a sugar nazi. But every once in a while (especially around the holidays), it is nice to tickle your dopamine center with something sweet. So to that end I started out on a mission to create a rich, but healthy dessert. I had no idea that what I was about to create could be a healthy Snickers® replacement! It is not very often I get sucked into sugar's sweet temptation, but oh, I could not stay away from these! My mind was relentless and as long as there were some in the freezer I could think of nothing else until they were gone.
Because of this I feel it is appropriate to place a disclaimer on this recipe:
Warning! These nifty nuggets have some seriously addictive qualities and will roll your eyes into the back of your head!
Well, you've been warned, so here you go!
Coconut Pecan Stuffed Chocolate Covered Dates, Oh My!
