These are very yummy, not too sweet, but super rich. They have a very subtle lingering spice to them that complements the chocolate nicely. If you've never had cayenne and chocolate, it's the perfect combination of flavors
You may be familiar with conventional version of Indian sweet called halwa made from refined flour, refined sugar, clarified butter, etc. This version of halwa is all natural and raw, tastes delicious, the prepared sweet can be stored inside the refregerator for several weeks. I used fully ripened hachiya persimmons, courtesy to my neighbor who had these heavenly delicious fruits falling on his backyard and getting rottened. Those of you have the tree (otherwise these are expensive in the market), this recipe is a good way to preserve it through the season and out.

I found this recipe on a forum somewhere while looking for a nut-free recipe for raw cheesecake. It could easily be made nut-free, all you have to do is either leave the crust out, or make your own nut-free crust! The filling has NO nuts!!!
