A lush combo of bitter chocolate, sweet juicy dates, creamy nut butter and salt. Taste-wise they kind of remind me of a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and Snickers bar hybrid. Gah, *drool*!

These stuffed medjool dates are total hedonism in a bite…I dare you to stop at one.

They’re so easy to whip up they barely need a recipe – but see below. The sweet sticky medjool dates, known for their caramel-toffee taste and texture, serve as the perfect hand-to-mouth vehicle for the glorious trio that is peanut butter, dark chocolate and flakey sea salt.

Enjoy a couple as the perfect after-dinner sweet snack. You’re welcome in advance friends.

Ingredients:  

  • 2 medjool dates *
  • 1 tsp peanut butter **
  • 1 small square of dark chocolate
  • A small pinch of flakey sea salt

Method:

  • Finely slice down the middle of each date lengthways, cutting it about half way down the date. Gently open by pulling apart, enough to remove the inner pip. Discard pip.
  • Spoon ½ tsp into nut butter into date.
  • Using a knife chop dark chocolate. Sprinkle overtop of the nut butter.
  • Sprinkle with a small pinch of sea salt. Enjoy!

Notes:

*Medjool dates are a large variety of date famed for their caramel-like taste, and superbly soft, moist and chewy inner texture. They have a high fructose content, making them pretty sweet. They can be found in the chilled produce section of the supermarket.
** Feel free to sub peanut butter for another nut butter of your choice e.g. hazelnut, almond…
