Peanut-Butter Date Bites

I am never never NEVER one to support recipe trends where people say, “WOW THESE ZUCCHINI CHIPS TASTE JUST LIKE POTATO CHIPS”. No, they don’t, and they never will. Stop lying to yourself and just eat a potato chip. But anyways, I have seen around the inter-webs people creating mini-desserts with dates, so I decided to make my own little creation. I am not going to agree with those people that these dates taste just like Snickers, because they don’t, but they are damn good. They are the perfect bite for when you want a little something sweet after dinner.

Ingredients

  • Peanut Butter
  • Dates, pitted and split on the side
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate chips
  • 1/3 Cup Half & Half, or Milk, use what you have and use more if needed
  • Chopped Almonds or Walnuts
  • Flaky Sea Salt

Let’s Get Cooking

If your dates aren’t pitted, be sure to do that now. Prep a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Cut a slit on one side of all the dates.

Using a spoon, place a small amount of peanut butter into the date, making sure it is enough that the date can still slightly close.
Once all the dates are stuffed, melt the chocolate + half and half in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second increments until combined. Coat the stuffed dates into the chocolate, it’s going to be messy, but it’s okay.

Place onto the parchment paper, and top with the chopped walnuts/almonds and sea salt.

Place in the freezer for 12 hours.

ENJOY! It’s hard to eat just one
