STUFFED DATES




Chocolate and Pistachio stuffed dates are elegant fingerfood or dessert for parties





STUFFED DATES is my contribution to "A FRUIT A MONTH " hosted my chandrika of "AKSHYAPATRA"








For chocolate stuffing melt semi sweet chocolate in a double boiler by placing a chocolate filled glass bowl on top of boiling water

Open dates in middle and fill the hallow space with melted chocolate until it oozes out then place stuffed dated on a tray let it set ( dont not refrigerate)


soft chocolate tastes very yummy than refrigerater one




;


Pulse unsalted pistachios in foodprocesser .

Heat pan add ground pistachios and sugar sautee until sugar is melted COOL

Stuff tsp of pistachio mixture inside dates

and serve

Pistachio stuffed dates must be a heavenly combination of flavors and textures. I'd love to have these with a cup of very hot, very strong unsweetened tea.

Hey Sagari,
MEME is actually a kind of a chain that goes on in the blogging world. When you are tagged, you are supposed to write about yourself(In this case, the fantastic four..ie four places you've lived in, four jobs,fav foods, holiday destination etc) and then tag someone else. Let me know if you need more info.
