"This chocolate-covered, nut-filled date candy is straight from Israel, an idea I received from my Yemenite neighbor. It's easy and delicious!"

bittersweet chocolate, chopped
pitted Medjool dates
sweetened shredded coconut
Easy to make, yummy to eat. They are so sweet that you should not have too many!
I made these in a care pack for my boyfriend's family at Christmas. They were the perfect sweet for the holidays. A tasty little treat after dinner with coffee.
easy peasy and a great recipe to play with. I toasted the coconut, replaced the pecans with almonds, and toasted some sesame seeds and also tucked a few of those inside with the almond. Used a few different kinds of chocolate(semi-sweet, german, unsweetened) mixed together. **Tip for a nice sheen-add a tbsp. of shortening (not butter) to the chocolate while melting. **Tip #2-toast the nuts for a depth of floavor and to avoid bitterness. Just toss them around in a hot dry pan on stovetop until toasted. I'm still a double-boiler gal. these tasted absolutely delish, present so well, easy to make, and have an incredible taste. the nut(and the sesame) gave it a sweet/salty mix. Loved it. thanks so much.
Party hit! I Made these for my daughters 6th grade food fair. She was assigned to bring a food from Israel. I made about 100. Ours was the first dish emptied! We will be making these again soon.
OMG! I used bitter chocolate (60% cacao). They were the hit of my dinner party!
Chocolate and dates are a surprisingly good combination. These are so super easy to make too. I just made enough for a small plate, to try the recipe. I prefer walnuts, so I used walnut halves instead of pecans. For the chocolate I used milk chocolate chips. I also didn't add the optional coconut and they were fine. This is quite a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth. The chocolate can really be added just to taste too. Interesting, ty.
