Tips and Tricks to making

  • I know a lot of people love medjool dates, but I love fresh dates sold in the refrigerated area. If you’re from Canada, Moshkan is the brand I love!

  • Try not to overstuff the dates or they may break apart and be difficult to coat them in the chocolate.

  • I like using chocolate with a high cacao percentage, this one from Alter Eco is my favourite! If you find your chocolate really thick, add 1-2 tsp of coconut oil to thin it out.

  • You can really stuff chocolate covered dates with anything, get creative!

  • Use thicker seed and nut butters, they will be much easier to handle! Runny tahini will be very difficult to use here.

Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates are the perfect easy and delicious dessert or snack! Here are 5 different ways to stuff these treats to change up the flavours. Vegan, gluten free & refined sugar free!

Makes: 15 stuffed dates, 3 flavours of each

Name of image (title of post is fine)

Prep time:

Cook time:

Ingredients:
  • 15 dates
  • 1 heaping tbsp cookie butter
  • 1 heaping tbsp of coconut butter (I used browned coconut butter)
  • 1 heaping tbsp tahini
  • 1/8 tsp miso paste
  • 1 heaping tbsp almond butter
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 pretzel sticks
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:
  1. Pit your dates by slicing one side and removing the pit.
  2. Salted Tahini Stuffed Date: in a small bowl mix together the tahini and miso paste until combined.
  3. Almond Espresso Stuffed Date: in a small bowl mix together the almond butter, vanilla extract and espresso powder until combined
  4. Stuff each date with 1-1.5 tsp of each mixture. For the peanut butter pretzel, place a pretzel right in the center of the date once you will it with peanut butter. Close each date and put it on a parchament lined tray. Place the tray into the fridge.
  5. Place your chocolate into a small bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals. Mix after each interval until completly melted.
  6. Dip each stuffed date into the chocolate until completly covered. I used a tooth pick for this, but you can also use a fork.
  7. Place each chocolate covered date back onto the tray and back into the fridge to let the chocolate harden for atleast 10 minutes. Store in a containerin the fridge and enjoy anytime!

NOTES:

  • I used my browned coconut butter recipe but any coconut butter will be delicious.

  • I used my homemade cookie butter here, but I LOVE stuffing it with this one too!

  • If your chocolate coating is too thick, thin it out with a little bit of coconut oil (around 1-2 tsp)

Save it for later! ↓
