I invented this recipe many years ago on a whim, and it was so popular that I have since made it many many times to the delight of my family and friends. This is so simple, you only need 4 ingredients to make it a stunning addition to your dessert. I’m using Medjool dates in this recipe as it is the King of dates, a title well deserved as the date is large, plump and juicy. You can sub any other date of your choice.
