Tahini Date Coffee Cups

Hi guys, sorry, I meant to post this last week but things got away from me.
You have to try these, they are so tasty and different than any other dessert.
I made them a couple weeks back and now we keep a ready supply in the freezer
because they are the perfect little healthy treat when our sweet tooth scream for something.

"Tahini Date Coffee Cups"


Coating:
·  1/2 cup tahini
·  1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

Filling:
·    1 cup of dates (make sure you get the pitted kind)
·   2 teaspoons coconut oil
·   1 teaspoon vanilla
·  1/2 teaspoon sea salt
·   1 cup of water (to soak the dates in)
·   3-4 tsp of instant coffee

Instructions:

1. Put the dates in the water and soak for atleast 2 hours or until soft enough for you to mash.
                     2. Line 20 to 22 mini muffin cups with paper liners.

                     3. In a medium bowl, beat together the tahini and coconut oil until smooth. Line the cups with a little under half of the mixture. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until set.

                     4. Make the filling by mashing up the dates using as much of the water as you need from the prune soaking, I just use a fork, it takes some arm power but it won't take too long.  Than add the coconut oil & tahini mix, the vanilla, the salt and the instant coffee and mix until you have a smooth, thick paste.

                   5.. Remove the cups from the refrigerator. Evenly drop about a teaspoon of the filling into each cup, let it pool in the middle, do not spread out.  Than fill the cups with the remaining of the tahini mixture until each cup is. 

6. Chill in the refrigerator again until set and then gobble up and enjoy.

(These need to be kept in the freezer afterward or in the fridge otherwise they will melt).
