I have to admit I have a sweet tooth, but filling it with loads of processed sugar isn't the answer. But these Chocolate Covered Nut Butter Stuffed Dates is one way I like to fulfill my sweet craving.
Dates are amazing! For the longest time I wouldn't eat them, not sure why, but I'm so glad I finally gave them a try. I first started using dates to sweeten smoothies and now I reach for them sometimes when I need a carb boost or to simply satisfy my sweet cravings.
Dates can do more than just fill your sweet tooth, they are a good source of fiber, potassium, manganese and the antioxidant polyphenol.
Dates have a long shelf life and the best way to store them is at room temperature in an airtight container for several months, if they last that long, or in the fridge for up to a year. Learn more about dates at The California Date Commission.
I'm not a big candy eater, so when I do it has to be worth the indulgence, truffles or caramels. But now I just reach for these Chocolate Covered Nut Butter Stuffed Dates because they are so decadent. One or two of these is all I need to satisfy my sweet craving.
- 1 cup nut butter, I used Cashew butter
- ¼ cup dried coconut flakes (optional)
- 25 or more dates, pitted
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- ½ cup vegan white chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl, combine nut butter and dried coconut flakes, set aside.
- With clean hands, open one side of dates and carefully remove pits.
- Gently fill dates with 1 to 1 ½ teaspoon of nut butter mixture and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Melt chocolate and coconut oil together using the double boiler method. Stir as chocolate melts to combine.
- Dip stuffed dates into melted chocolate, place chocolate covered dates back on parchment lined baking sheet. Place in fridge and allow chocolate to harden.
- While chocolate hardens in dates melt the vegan white chocolate chips, using the double boiler method.
- Transfer melted white chocolate to a zip-lock bag, cut a small bit off a corner of the bag. Remove dates from the fridge, using a zig-zag motion, pipe the white chocolate over the dates, the drizzle should harden immediately because the dates are cold.
- Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge.
