TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Make a batch of almond butter from this recipe https://www.recipecommunity.com.au/sauces-dips-spreads-recipes/almond-butter/kgdwmqbd-b88f0-134562-cfcd2-q9bbpu7v
Once you have done that clean and dry your mixing bowl.
Slice dates long ways in half on one side (Not completely in half because you want to stuff them) and discard the pits.
Break up chocolate and grate for 10 seconds / speed 8 then melt for 2 min/ 50o /speed 3. While chocolate is melting use a teaspoon to stuff almond butter into the cavity in each of the dates.
Place some baking paper on a tray. Dip each date into the melted chocolate one by one coating each one completely and place on baking paper (I find sitting the date on a fork and dipping into chocolate the easiest way to do this) then sprinkle with your desired toppings. Place in fridge or freezer to cool depending on how impatient you are
Should keep in the fridge for up to two weeks or pop them in the freezer.
Eat straight from the fridge or freezer (warning: they are hard straight from the freezer)
