Are you looking for healthier dessert options? Paul Merritt and Maha Surani opened Bisou Dates and Chocolates in 2017 in Ottawa. Their company offers chocolate-filled dates, date butter, along with chocolate date bars and cookies. Bisou Dates and Chocolates can be found at the Carp Market, Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne and their online store.
The chocolate-filled dates are heavenly – they are a decadent dessert without being overly too sweet. Covered with 70% dark chocolate, the inside date is then filled with nuts, candied fruit, caramel or marzipan. These sweets are a personal favourite of mine, and I’d strongly prefer one over a regular chocolate truffle.
