This recipe is essentially a glorified fruit cake. I didn't have any dates on hand, and, being a crazy chocolate lover, I added lots of chocolate chips. Oh - and does anybody really chop raisins? I think that would take way too much time. I didn't chop mine. In any case, with the chocolate chips I would give it 4 stars - without, I give it 3. It's tasty, and I like to try to eat healthy. I totally appreciate a healthy dessert; this was a great snack and a fun way to get the kids to eat a little bit of fruits/veggies... but I'm not a huge fan of fruit cake and I think the chocolate chips might be mostly to blame for the kids fighting for the last piece. All in all, I'm glad I tried this recipe and I'm sure I will be trying it again. Thanks, sneaky mommy! :)
