For many, breaking their fast is not about stuffing as much meat and rice into their mouths as possible but about taking a moment to pray, contemplate the day of fasting and munch on a couple of dates and a glass of milk. And while this is sure to be a lighter load on your body and less of a shock to your metabolism, I would like to shake things up a bit. So take the light and spiritual way of breaking your fast up a notch with some chocolate and nuts.
A bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped up in little pieces.
Pitted black dates
Walnuts or Peanuts
A skewer, toothpick, or fork
2. Line a baking sheet or a flat serving dish with foil .
5. Place each chocolate-dipped date on the parchment paper or foil to cool.
6. Store in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
If this recipe is too sugary for breaking your fast, save the dates for dessert and serve them with strong coffee.
