This year, Christmas is unlike any other. I showed the gifts that D.O. Cava sent me, and I mentioned my idea to prepare something delicious to pair with them.

So here is a simple and pretty idea for some delicious chocolates to serve at your festive celebrations, with only three ingredients. These are ideal accompanied by a Cava de Guarda Superior Reserva Rosé.

Making these chocolate bonbons is very quick and easy.


Ingredients for about 20 chocolates
150 g almonds
220 g Medjool dates, pitted
50 g cocoa powder
Sugar-free white chocolate for coating
Food colouring to dye the chocolate (optional)


First, grind the almonds (or other nuts) and the dates (or other dried fruit) together in a blender.
Then add the cocoa powder, and mould the mix into small balls.
Finally, bathe each ball in melted chocolate (dyed, if you wish), and leave to set.

Simple and delicious!

⚡️ Alternative ingredients

Instead of dates, you can use other dried fruit such as dried apricots, sultanas, etc.

Instead of almonds, use any other types of nuts.
