Dessert Charosets

Dessert Charosets created by AcadiaTwo

A modernised traditional Moroccan recipe -from Australian Womens Weekly Moroccan cookbook. I thought these looked interesting and easily made gluten-free by ensuring gluten-free chocolate is used. You can leave out the chocolate all-together if you wish. Recipe uses Australian measures- 1 tablespoon = 4 teaspoons. Time stated does not include overnight refrigeration required

    This recipe made 18 however, I really didn't take the time to measure out the date mixture into even amounts so it might make more. I subbed pecans for walnuts mainly due to preference. I used the semi sweet chocolate morsels however my MIL thinks they would be even better with a 70 percent chocolate as she thought they were almost too sweet. To me, I thought they were perfect and I was glad the recipe only made a small amount. I also didn't roll them in the nuts like suggested. I also used sweet sherry wine. These are so yummy!
