  • Pit the time periods. Transfer them to a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper and save.

 

  • Get the filler ready. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the almond butter, coconut oil, and salt.

  • Fill the dates to the brim. Fill each date with one spoonful of the nut butter mixture. To set, put the baking sheet in the freezer.

 

  • Pour the chocolate over. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler, on the stovetop, or in the microwave for 90 to 120 seconds at 30-second intervals.

  • Pour chocolate over the crammed dates. With a fork, dip each date one at a time into the melted chocolate, covering it completely. Make sure the dates are not in contact with one another as you return the baking sheet to the oven after letting any excess chocolate fall off.

 

  • Give the chocolate time to solidify. To let the chocolate solidify, put the baking sheet full of dates covered in chocolate in the refrigerator for about half an hour. It will take at least an hour for it to naturally solidify at room temperature.

TIPs

Recipe Toppings and Swaps

 

  • The combination of dates, nut butter and chocolate is decadent on its own, but it doesn’t need to stop there if you wish to dress it up further! Also, each of these ingredients can be swapped depending on what modifications you wish to make.

Toppings

 

  • Feel free to sprinkle any of these ingredients on top of the dates once they are coated in chocolate prior to letting them harden:

  • Crushed nuts (almonds, pistachios, walnuts or pecans) for a bit of crunch

 

  • Shredded coconut

  • Flaky sea salt

Swaps

 

  • Medjool dates: Deglet Noor dates are a simple swap if you are unable to find Medjool dates at your local grocery store. Deglet Noor dates are a little more bite-sized than Medjool dates in the event you are seeking smaller serving.

  • Almond butter: Any nut butter works perfectly in these treats, so take your choice of fillings! Creamy peanut butter, hazelnut butter and cashew butter are all great options. Sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter or tahini is an easy swap as well for a nut-free option.

 

  • Vegan dark chocolate: Any kind of chocolate will suffice. I prefer dairy-free chocolate to keep it vegan. Milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate are sweeter options depending on your preference.
