  1. Melt the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of just simmering water. Push a skewer into one end of each date, then roll in the melted chocolate. Place on a baking sheet and freeze for 20 mins or until set.
  2. Draw 2 tiny circles of white chocolate writing icing on the front of each chocolate-covered date for eyes, and put a currant in the middle of each for pupils.
  3. Decorate the dates with stripes of white chocolate writing icing to resemble bandages.
