Chocolate Covered Chewy Toffee Bites A.K.A. Dumle

Dumle is one of Sweden’s most loved candies, and as a child, I adored it too. No wonder though as they are chewy pieces of toffee of absolute deliciousness. Naturally, I had to make my own version. Making lots of individual toffees may seem like a lot of work, which it kind of is, but you can just as well make these into bars or squares as suggested down below. Moving over, I thought this recipe would be extra appropriate since Easter is not far away. Imagine making a large batch of these to surprised or impress your loved ones for Easter. Or even you eat all of them by yourself. Regardless, yum!

Chocolate Covered Chewy Toffee Bites A.K.A. Dumle

The classic Finish/Swedish chocolate covered toffee treat, Dumle, in a new and improved version based on wholesome ingredients, dates and nut butter.


  • 150g / 5,3 oz pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice
  • Two hearty pinches of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optionally a splash of toffee flavouring*
  • Melted chocolate for dipping and coating


  1. In a food processor, mix the dates, nut butter, salt, vanilla, and toffee flavouring into a smooth slightly sticky dough. Transfer to a bowl and let firm up in the freezer for at least an hour.
  2. Shape the dough into small little toffees and place on a plate lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper. Alternatively, you can press down the dough into a a square dish lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap, freeze it and then cut it into small squares with a sharp knife. Dip the toffees in the melted chocolate. Place them on the prepped plate and let the chocolate set in the fridge or freezer. Devour!


*It is NOT essential to the recipe, but it gives the salted caramel layer that extra oumph of caramel and toffee. I found a bottle of it at a local spice store.
