Simple Chocolate And Date Spread

As an alternative to nut based chocolate spreads this one is date based. Because of sweetness of the dates, there is no need to add sugar or any other sweetener. Dates also contain plenty of fiber, but less calories than nuts. This variation is perfect for those who watch their calorie intake or those allergic to nuts. It is also vegan and wheat and gluten free.
