Fudge Babies courtesy of Housewife in the Raw blog

I wanted to take my appetite towards another direction... raw baby, raw.  I admit I have been a bit intrigued by the raw diet.  Not so much that I want to go raw, but intrigued nonetheless.  Housewife in the raw has some appealing recipes but I wanted to go with something I knew I would like... chocolate.  I mean, can you really go wrong with anything made from chocolate????  I tried a recipe for Fudge babies- or homemade Lara Bars.  These are fudgy, nutty and oh so naughty tasting!  These will definitely be something I will make again in the future.  Go here for her information and take a peek at her blog.  I'm going to do a repeat visit and try her granola recipes next!
My only complaint with this recipe was that it didn't make near enough.
I used about
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 1/3 cup pitted dates
1 teapoon vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons dark cocoa powder
     I threw everything in to my vita mix and hit the power button.  Once everything was chopped up, I took the dough and rolled in to little balls.  I'm thinking that I will roll them into coconut next time

I really should try these. Thanks for the reminder. Not sure about the rest of the "raw" thing, but it does sound interesting.
