These raw candies turned out better than what I could have ever imagined. They taste exactly just like Hersey’s Rolo candies. Even though they have been around for 75 years, a few of you may not be familiar with them. They come wrapped individually in gold foil, have a chewy caramel center, and are covered in a milk chocolate outer layer.
Now, through this recipe, you can experience a healthier version of Rollos, made in the comfort of your own kitchen.
I know what your thinking… why don’t you just dip a date in raw chocolate and call it good? Or perhaps, your thoughts are getting all fancy on me and thinking… how about pouring the melted chocolates in candy molds, hollowing them out and putting date paste in the center?…
Truthfully, those would work but here’s the difference…by dehydrating the date paste and rolling it into coils… it creates a very chewy center for the rolls, that matches the commercially made candies.
Below I provided a link on making your own raw hardening chocolate for these candies… if that is out of your comfort zone, or you don’t have access to such ingredients… or perhaps you are new to raw and you are taking baby steps through this learning curve… you can use melted commercially made chocolate chips. Do the best you with what you have.
The Hersey’s company advertised for many years with the slogan of… “Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rollo?” So, my question for you is… “Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Raw Rollo Date Caramel?” All I can say is that Bob now knows just how much I love him. hehe
