Preparation steps

1.

For the filling: Finely chop the chocolate. Heat the creme fraiche in a saucepan, add the chocolate, stir in brandy and butter and heat just until the chocolate has melted. Cool slightly, the chocolate should not harden.

2.

With cool hands shape the chocolate mixture into 40 small balls, and stuff into the dates, refrigerate.

3.

To cover: Chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl over a hot water bath along with the palm oil and melt. Set aside, stirring occasionally until cool. Arrange the work surface with baking paper or greaseproof paper and take the dates from the refrigerator. Spear the dates with a wooden stick and pull it through the melted chocolate, drain slightly and place on the baking paper to dry. Serve, or put the well-dried chocolates in paper cases and pack as a gift.
