Donna Hay’s chocolate and peanut butter date fudge

what-you-need:
330g fresh dates+, pitted
⅓ cup (95g) natural smooth peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
80g 70% dark chocolate
1 teaspoon white or black sea salt flakes (optional), to serve

what-you-do:
Place the dates, peanut butter and vanilla in a food processor and process for 2–3 minutes or until smooth and mixture comes together. Press the mixture into a 20cm x 10cm lightly greased loaf tin lined with non-stick baking paper, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon.

Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter caramel, smoothing the top with a palette knife. Sprinkle with salt, if using, and freeze for 30 minutes or until firm. Using a hot knife, cut into pieces to serve.

Makes 32.

+ A high source of soluble dietary fibre, dates are great for digestion. They are also known to be high in bone-strengthening vitamins. Fresh dates are sold loose with their seeds intact, in supermarkets or greengrocers.

Tip: The fudge pieces will keep refrigerated or frozen in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
