When I was little a choc ice was the ULTIMATE in ice creamy treats, my sister & I LOVED them.
There was also an ongoing discussion over the exact way one had to eat them – were you an ‘All-In-One Muncher’ or a ‘Nibble Off The Chocolate Firster’ please email me your responses or comment below as 20 years later we still disagree on this point. Now I must admit I haven’t had a choc ice in an exceptionally long time but that doesn’t mean they don’t still hold a fond place in my heart, & it’s those ongoing amorous feelings that have inspired today’s recipe.
By turning to fibre rich dates for the ‘envelope’ element for the ice cream filling you not only get a burst of divinely delicious flavour but a whole host of nutritional wonder too, & the small smattering of bitter chocolate perfectly compliments those creamy, dreamy, sticky elements.
I think these make for the perfect, light after dinner morsel, or dip-intoable snack when you feel the need for something a little sweet.
The fact that they take mere moments to make only adding to the joy that they undoubtedly bring by the bucket load!
