Dessert Charosets

Dessert Charosets


A modernised traditional Moroccan recipe -from Australian Womens Weekly Moroccan cookbook. I thought these looked interesting and easily made gluten-free by ensuring gluten-free chocolate is used. You can leave out the chocolate all-together if you wish. Recipe uses Australian measures- 1 tablespoon = 4 teaspoons. Time stated does not include overnight refrigeration required
