Chocolate Chip Cherry Brooke Bars

Submitted by: THURBZZ

Introduction

A homemade version of the Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Larabars A homemade version of the Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Larabars
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 cup (approx 12) large Medjool Dates (pitted)
    1 cup Dried unsweetened cherries
    1/2 cup Almonds
    1/2 cup Cashews
    1Tbsp Cocoa powder
    1/4 cup Semisweet chocolate chips (mini or regular)

Tips

- Don't over-process the dates or you will get a large sticky lump that isn't quite the right texture.
- I prefer to eat these room temperature, but I recommend storing them in the refrigerator.


Directions

1. Put nuts in a food processor and pulse until they are ground up (but not powder or butter) If you are using whole chips you may want to add them at this step and pulse them a few times to break them up. Mini chips can be added last.
2. Add the dates and cherries and pulse long, then short until mixture is ground up but loose - resembling a rich soil.
3. Add the cocoa powder (and mini chips if you have them) and pulse until just incorporated.
4. Press into a 9"x9" pan lined with parchment and chill. (30 min.) When firm cut into equal size delicious snack bars!

Serving Size: Makes 12-16 bars
