A recipe for a no-bake coffee, date and walnut slice

Coffee Date Walnut Slice

No one ever said that desserts needed to be hard. In fact, some of the best desserts out there require little to no work at all. This delightful treat you can make from scratch and impress your friends, but you won't even need to turn on your oven. All you'll need is a food processor and a few minutes to brew the required coffee.
