They may be inspired by an old-fashioned candy, but these modern marvels are beguiling on their own, even without the backstory. They're all about delectable dates, nature's very own candy, with coconut and almonds adding more wholesome goodness.
If you're grandmother used to make date-nut roll candy for the holidays, you're already familiar with how delicious it can be-and just how treacly sweet it can be, too, depending on which of the countless variations on the date-nut-milk-butter formula she followed.
Well, good news: These healthier updates skip any added sugar and allow the incomparable sweetness of dates to shine through. And because dates are naturally sticky, they don't need anything else to create a fudgelike consistency. Flecks of shredded coconut (of the unsweetened variety) provide contrasting texture and distinctive flavor-and even more sticky goodness. And instead of mixing chopped nuts into the date base, as in the candies of yore, each of these wholesome pieces is topped with a whole blanched almond. Think of them as ultra-delicious high-energy snacks to enjoy any time of year, and any time of day.
