My two eldest girls can be quite challenging when it comes to food. Miss C will happily eat avocado, mangoes and prawn dumplings by the bucket load, but is generally not all that food focused at meal times (preferring instead to snack and graze throughout the day). Little J would happily have yoghurt for breakfast lunch and dinner, and has no interest in more ‘traditional’ meals such as sandwiches.
Needless to say that if I was to present them with a bowl filled with dates, they would be looked at with suspicion and remain uneaten.
Put dates in a chocolate covered slice however? Well that proved to be a winner!
This slice contains no flour, no eggs, but it does contain nuts so is not allergy-friendly for school lunchboxes.
The texture of this slice is almost fudge-like, and we all loved the little pops of crunchiness throughout. Covering the slice in dark chocolate took the whole slice to the next level too – and worked perfectly to fool my suspicious eaters!
