MCLV Mange | Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Dates

I love an easy dessert. Combine simple ingredients with a seriously delicious end result, and I’m a happy, happy girl.

These date-based dessert bites are a winner. Sweet date-y goodness mixed with rich chocolate and salty nut butter. What could possibly be better?

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Dates – Ingredients:

  • 12 whole dates
  • 1/4 cup of nut butter
  • Bag of chocolate chips or chocolate bar
  • Sea salt for finishing
  • Optional: Coconut oil

Directions:

  • If you’re using dates with the pits, remove the pits – Using a small knife cut a slit across the top of each date. Place the dates on a parchment paper or tin foil lined baking sheet, or in a large freezer safe dish with a lid.
  • Fill each date with your nut butter of choice and place them in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • While they’re cooling down, it’s time to melt your chocolate. You can microwave it, but I personally think it turns out better if you pop them on the stove top in a small pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Stir until smooth and even.
  • Once the 15 minutes is up, take your dates out of the freezer and dip them one at a time into the melted chocolate. Coat each date completely before returning to the baking sheet/container.
  • After they’ve sat for a minute or so, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.
  • Let them set for 10-15 minutes in the fridge before eating.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge. If you don’t like to eat them cold, you can let them “thaw” for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.

Enjoy!
