What do I need to make the chocolate covered stuffed dates?
I went for Persian dates because they are soft and really sweet and not expensive as Medjool dates. I bought a box of 50 dates from a local shop for £1.50. I used almond butter for this recipe but you can use any nut butter that you have. If you want to add extra flavour and sweetness you could try stuffing Biscoff spread or cream cheese. After you coat the dates, you can sprinkle chopped nuts or dry fruits if you wish.

Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates
- 22-25 medium soft dates I used Persian dates
- unsalted nut butter almond or peanut
- 100 g dark chocolate broken into pieces
- Cut each date to open a little and remove the pit.
- Fill each date with about 1/2 tsp of your nut butter.
- Place the broken chocolate in a bowl and melt in a microwave for 1-2 minutes on a medium power. Stir few times to avoid burning.
- Let the stuffed dates firm up a bit in the freezer for about 15 minutes. This also helps to harden the chocolate quickly and nicely once it's covered.
- With a toothpick or a folk, pick a date and dip in the melted chocolate. Roll it around to coat completely and place it on a flat plate line with baking paper. Repeat the step for the rest of the dates.
- Let the chocolate harden up in at room temperature. Store the dates in an airtight container in the fridge up to a week.
