These dates are stuffed with creamy peanut butter and get dipped in chocolate. Add some chopped nuts to the top or coarse sea salt for garnish. 



  • 8 oz milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate 
  • 12 pitted Medjool dates 
  • 1/2 cup of softened peanut butter 
  • 4 tablespoons of finely chopped walnuts or peanuts
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Stuff each date with about a teaspoon of pean butter.  Place them in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. 
  3. Melt chocolate with coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 to 3 minutes. Check occasionally and stir every 30 seconds until it’s all melted. 
  4. Dip the stuffed date in the chocolate and rotate it around with a fork so that the date gets completely covered with chocolate. Then tap it on the side of the bowl to get rid of excess chocolate. 
  5. Place the date on the parchment paper and garnish with coarse sea salt or chopped peanuts.
