Sweet Kwikbytes

My lovely daughter Erica & I were out @
the beach for morning tea last week & as she is gluten free we ordered our coffee & a gluten free choc bite full of dates & chocolate & orange flavours . And that got us thinking 'Why don't we try to make them' - so here is our attempt - not bad for the first try! We changed a few of the ingredients ie used Mandarins instead of Oranges & Macadamia nuts instead of cashews but pecans can be used as well
Anyways it turned out delicious and I thought I'd share it here...

Mix chopped dates, cocoa, chopped nuts of your choice together with orange juice to a stiff consistency & roll in coconut, set in fridge. Enjoy

Some Clarification!

So I need to explain about Kwikbytes, my yummy recipes for quick meals. I came up with the idea while writing one day. I was hubbing and tweeting away in between chapters of my novel and the hours slipped away and before I knew it I was so engrossed in writing that I suddenly realized I was famished and it was way past lunch time. Really wanting to stay in the moment of the story somewhere between the 5th & 6th chapter I was lamenting the fact that I would need to take the time to get myself some lunch & the time it would take & I had the bright idea of trying to come up with a nourishing Kwikbyte in the time it would take to compose a post on my blog or write a tweet & post it on twitter.
So basically I needed to come up with an idea in about 5 to 10 minutes.
So therefore the idea of Kwikbytes for writers was born & in coming weeks I will post more delicious recipes here on my blog & you can also find them on twitter @04darcy. Check them out you won't be disappointed.
Till later
