  • Start by removing the pit from each date. Do this by splitting the date with your hands (or a sharp knife) just enough to remove the pit without splitting them completely in half.
  • Spoon as much as you’d like of your nut or seed butter into each date (depending on the size of the date, this is about 1 teaspoon). Once stuffed, put them in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.
  • Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil (if using) and melt in the microwave or using the double boiler method until smooth.
  • Take the stuffed dates out of the freezer. With a fork, dip the stuffed dates into the melted chocolate mixture, completely dunking until well covered, shaking off any excess chocolate.
  • Place back in the freezer for at least 1 hour to harden and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy!


The coconut oil will help to harden up the chocolate in the fridge faster and give the chocolate a silkier texture. If you don't have any, you can just leave it out.
No peanut butter? Use cashew butter or almond butter instead.
Nut-free? Substitute sun butter or tahini.
No chocolate chips? Chop up your favorite chocolate bar instead.
Additions: if your nut butter isn't crunchy, you can sprinkle nuts, seeds, or flakey salt on top.
