CHOCOLATE GLAZED DATES DESSERT

glazed dates chocolate dessert vegan

I had a full week (and I was a bit sick too), but today is the perfect day to come back to my blog:
it is Saturday, I have nothing to do but having relax, so, here I am.
Let's get back to us: be honest, my readers, how many time did you think, or listen to 
THE MOST DELICIOUS FOOD IS ALWAYS ALSO THE WORST FOR HEALTH
?
I know, I know: every, single, time.
While you were at restaurant and were deciding on dessert-yes / dessert-NO NO NO.
While you were walking and bumped into the most inviting sweets shop window e-v-e-r.
Or while you were at your dentist's lounge, surrounded by all those pictures with 
happy-teeth-with-vegetables and sad-teeth-with-chocolate-cakes (true story).
Anyway, we are led to believe that the most delicious things will make our bikini moment
as horrible as 3 hours line at postal office. So we always ask:WHYYY?! Why a beautiful,
inviting, glazed chocolate cake can't be as healthy as that celery lying in my fridge?
Maybe you don't know dates or, trust me, you should be more busy in eating them than
paying yourself existential questions.
Dates are amazing fruits from Mediterranean Africa, Israel and western Asia with heavenly taste 
and lots of beneficial nutritional properties.
Because YES, there are so many natural delicious things to taste, it is our interest 
discovering them and, today, I want to share with you a simple, incredibly tasty, dessert 
you won't help but it!
(If you want know more about my recipes, here you find what you are looking for.)

Ho avuto una settimana pienissima (e sono stata anche poco bene), ma oggi è la giornata perfetta
per tornare al mio blog: è Sabato e non ho altro da fare se non rilassarmi, quindi eccomi qui.
Torniamo a noi: siate oneste, quante volte avete pensato, o sentito
IL CIBO PIÙ BUONO È SEMPRE ANCHE QUELLO CHE FA PIÙ MALE
?
Lo so, lo so: ogni, singola, volta.
Quando eravate al ristorante e stavate decidendo tra dessert-sì / dessert-NO NO NO.
Quando stavate camminando e vi siete imbattute nella più invitante vetrina di dolci di s-e-m-p-r-e.
O quando eravate nella sala d'attesa del vostro dentista, circondate da quelle immagini di
denti-felici-con-verdure e denti-tristi-con-torte-al-cioccolato (storia vera).
In ogni caso, siamo portati a credere che le cose più buone renderanno il nostro momento
bikini terribile quanto una coda di 3 ore in posta. E ci chiediamo sempre: PERCHÉÉÉ?!
Perché  una bella, invitante, torta glassata al cioccolato non può essere sana come il sedano
che giace nel mio frigo?
Forse non avete mai assaggiato i datteri, altrimenti sareste più impegnate a mangiarli che
a porvi domande esistenziali.
I datteri sono frutti fantastici provenienti dall'Africa mediterranea, Israele e Asia occidentale, 
con un sapore paradisiaco ed un sacco di propretà nutrizionali benefiche.
Perché Sì, ci sono così tanti cibi naturali deliziosi, a noi sta scoprirli ed io, oggi, voglio
mostrarvi un dessert veloce, incredibilmente buono, di cui non farete più a meno!
(Se volete sapere di più riguardo le mie ricette, qui trovate ciò che cercate.)

Time // Tempo:

10 min preparation + 10 min in fridge. // 10 min preparazione + 10 min in frigo.

Difficulty // Difficoltà:

Your dog could do it too. // Anche il vostro cane potrebbe farcela.

Ingredients // Ingredienti:

- Dates a go-go // Datteri a volontà
- 50 g (1,8 oz.) dark chocolate // 50 g di cioccolato fondente
- Shucked nuts // Noci sgusciate
- Sticks // Bastoncini da cucina.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Mince grossly (really grossly) the chocolate. // Tritate molto (ma molto) grossolanamente
il cioccolato.


2)
Make chocolate melt in a small pot with low heat, blending to avoid that it attaches. // Fate 
sciogliere il cioccolato in un pentolino a fuoco basso, mescolando per evitare che si attacchi.


3)
Remove stalks from dates. // Rimuovete i piccioli dai datteri.


4)
Cut dates in half and remove pits. // Tagliate i datteri a metà e rimuovete i noccioli.


5)
Fill each date with half nut (or more, if your dates are big enough), then close them. It will 
remain closed, thanks to their sticky nature. // Riempite ogni dattero con mezza noce 
(o anche di più, se i vostri datteri sono grossi abbastanza), poi richiudeteli. Resteranno chiusi
grazie al fatto che sono un po' appiccicosi.


6)
 Insert the sticks in your dates. // Infilate i bastoncini nei datteri.


7)
 Now dip the dates into the liquid chocolate (I don't know how I resisted drinking it all!) to cover
them all, then lay them on a dish. // Ora intingete i datteri nel cioccolato fuso (non so come
ho fatto a non berlo!) per ricoprirli, poi appoggiateli su un piatto.


8)
Put the dish in your fridge for about 10 minutes (or more, if you will eat this dessert at the end
of a dinner with friends). // Mettete il piatto in frigo per circa 10 minuti (o anche di più,
se volete mangiare questo dessert alla fine di una cena con amici).


9)
Voilà, your dessert is ready and, trust me, keep some dates a part for you, because they will
disappear as soon as you will serve them! // Voilà, il vostro dessert è pronto e, credetemi,
tenetene da parte qualcuno per voi, perché questi spariranno non appena li avrete serviti!

  18. Isn't there a saying, something like if it tastes amazing then it probably isn't good for you! Hehehe! This is a really cool and simple idea for that perfect balance between the two. Hope you're feeling better now.
