Stuffed dates dipped in dark chocolate

Author: Shelly


  • 10 small Medjool dates or other dates (If the date is the large medjool kind, you can dip only half of it)
  • Walnuts - 10 halves
  • 3.5 oz. about 1 cup dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • Sea salt


  • Line a plate with parchment paper.
  • Roughly break the chocolate and put it in a double boiler – in a bowl over a saucepan filled with 1 cup of water, over medium low heat. DO NOT stir the chocolate. Sprinkle a tiny bit salt and cook until the chocolate is melted.
  • Make a lengthwise slit in the dates and remove their pits. Stuff each date with a walnut and tighten it around the nut so the nut stays in.
  • Transfer the melted chocolate into a medium, deep bowl. Dip each date in the chocolate – you can use chopsticks, tongs or a tooth pick to grab it – and place it on the lined plate.
  • Put the plate in the fridge until the chocolate is solid – about 20 minutes.
