Raw Honey Praline Bites w/ Chocolate Drizzle

Makes about 9 bites

Ingredients:

 

BITES

6 oz raw pecans

2 oz shredded coconut

7 oz pitted dates

2 oz Wedderspoon Beechwood Honey

pinch of salt

pinch of vanilla powder

 

CHOC DRIZZLE

1 oz coconut oil, gently melted

.5 oz Wedderspoon Beechwood Honey

Toppings: pecans, coconut flakes, cacao nibs…

 

Directions:

  1. Pulse pecans, coconut, salt, and vanilla in food processor until very fine
  2. Add dates and honey, pulse until dough forms. Taste! A little salt is good in this recipe as it brings out the toffee flavours in the pecans, dates, and honey.
  3. Press dough in pan. We used a 3×3 square lined with parchment for easy removal
  4. Allow to set in freezer for one hour
  5. Mix melted oil, honey, salt and cacao to make the drizzle
  6. Remove bites from freezer, cut into desired pieces, then drizzle chocolate; we also garnished ours with whole pecans
  7. Keep in fridge up to a week or store in freezer if they last that long!

Easy No-Bake Key Lime Bites with Wild Rata Honey

Key Lime Pie 1

I’m not much of a baker — all the precise measurements and exactitude of baking scare me. I’m much more of a taste-as-you-go cook, adding spices and mixing until I get it right. That’s why I was so pleasantly surprised to find this recipe for Easy No-Bake Key Lime Bites; no baking means easy preparation during busy summertime days and few ingredients makes this recipe appropriate for even the most novice dessert-maker (like me). These tasty, simple bites are perfect for your next outdoor get-together! Best part is, no baking means a cool house on a hot summer day! Pair them with our Rata Berry Cocktail for a refreshing new take on barbecue-worthy treats. #summerhoneylove
