*You may need to add more chocolate than this as you go, it depends on how generous your spoonfuls are as you go. Just keep adding and melting more as you need. **TIP: The date caramel will be STICKY. So, when flattening it out, I suggest either spraying your hand with some nonstick spray or by wetting your fingers with some water. This will minimize the stickiness and allow you to flatten the caramel into nice circles with smooth tops.
