Those look delicious and healthy too! I'm not too big of a fan of dates either, but in the case of raw desserts the flavor is usually masked pretty well, in this case the cacao most likely. Besides, for health, I'd rather consume dates than white sugar anytime.
Finished making my second bag ever. I am very happy with this one because it is actually practical and has enough pockets for all my needs. I bought the pattern here http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChrisWDesigns and it was well worth it as the directions are so complete and it's a style worth repeating. Including the price of the pattern, the supplies cost around $25. Not bad.
