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.
Stuffed Medjool Dates with Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate & Flakey Sea Salt
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!
*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…
