simple and sweet treat for halloween
2 cup unsoaked, pitted dates
¼ cup cocoa powder
sesame seeds, optional for "eyes"
1.place dates in food processor fitted with “S” blade, and process until well chopped
2.add cocoa powder and process until a ball forms
3.roll to desired thickness, between cling wrap
4.chill until firm
5.cut as desired ..i used a small bat:)...also shown as a truffle in mini cupcake paper with holiday pick
6.decorate with sesame seeds for eyes and use the end of a straw at an angle to make a smile:)
of course , you can use your favorite fudge or brownie recipe for this and make any additions like vanilla bean, or other flavorings:)
if you would like to individually wrap these, let them dry out a bit on the counter before slipping them into lollipop bags.

hi blueyz...i have had this fudge in the fridge for weeks with no problem, the same with the "coconut clay", as i have used it as a mounds type of treat covered in chocolate:) my darlin clementine punkins can be made well in advance too..good luck with the costume!!!!
This is great :) How long do these keep well? I have to bring some treats next week for grad class Halloween party(lol, we have to be in character too as someone that influenced ecology/environment but I have no clue what yet). If I could make them Sunday for Tuesday I will use some of these ideas. I LOVE the ghosts!!
