No Bake Date and Hazelnut Fudgy Bars

This are a cinch with only 4 ingredients and a stint in the fridge plus an optional melted chocolate topping, are a perfect sweet bake for when you just have to have something. The dates while bringing the sweetness to these also add some fibre and minerals to the party. Just don’t eat the lot
