16 fresh dates pitted
1/3 cup peanut butter (natural)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rice puffs
1 1/3 cup almonds (coarsely ground)
80 grams unsweetened dark chocolate
Use a food processor to puree the dates and grind the almonds.
Line your pans with parchment paper.
Puree the dates in the food processor then add peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well.
In a large bowl, combine the puffed rice and almonds. Add the date mixture then mix well. Top this mixture into the prepared baking pan(s) and press the mixture so it is compact.
Put the chocolate in a bowl, then put it in the microwave. Cook using short periods to avoid burning the chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate on top of the date mixture using the back of a spoon.
Transfer the pan(s) to the fridge then let set for at least 45 min. Cut each squares into 12 pieces then serve.
