    When I made mine, much like most things I make with dates, they do not hold together very well. The chocolate on top seems to be the only thing holding it together.

      Try to take big Medjoldates. They are jucier and help to hold all ingredients together

    Lovely recipe! I was wondering one thing. How long can you keep this fresh out of the fridge? I’ll go canoeing for one week and was wondering if this, or one of the other bars on this site, will be a proper snack to take along.

      Hi Abigail! We took them for a 7-day hiking trip and they were ok.
