Cookies: Put all the dry ingredients in a food processor and grind down to a medium mix, not too fine and not too chunky. Add all the wet ingredients and mix to a dough type mix. Put in a bowl and pop in fridge for 10 minutes. Heat oven to 150ºC and line a large tray with baking paper. Wet hands and roll out dough into small balls, place on tray and spread or squash down to a cookie shape with a fork. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden. Take out oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
Topping: Prepare frosting by mixing the cacao (or dark chocolate) with the dates in a blender until a smooth paste. Place in a heat proof dish or bowl and simmer over a saucepan of water that has come off the boil - do not have the bowl in the water but just above, you want to melt it not cook it!
Once the biscuits have cooled spread the frosting and that's it.
