Why We Like It

We love having bite-sized sweet treats on hand to satisfy those sweet cravings.  This one was inspired by an Eat REAL America member and, yes, it tastes like a Snickers bar!  Plus, it only requires 4 REAL ingredients and is so super-easy to prepare, watch our video to see how!  Keep them in the fridge for an ideal grab and go sweet treat!

Prepare the Stuffed Dates:

  • 12 dates (Medjool or variety of your choice, pitted)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter, creamy or crunchy)
  • 3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (or dark chocolate bar)
  • 1/4 cup peanuts (chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp coconut oil (OPTIONAL)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (OPTIONAL)

Cut a slit in the top of your dates – lengthwise.  Remove the pits if dates are not already pitted.  Then, add a teaspoon of peanut butter inside each date and press the halves of the dates together slightly.

Melt dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate and use a fork or spoon to drizzle dark chocolate on top of the dates.  If desired, you can add 1/4 tsp of coconut oil to the chocolate before melting for a slightly smoother texture and to help it harden.

Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top.  (If peanuts are not salted, you can also sprinkle a tiny bit of salt on top.)

Place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes for them to set and chocolate to harden.

Serve and Enjoy!

You can store the stuffed dates in your refrigerator for a sweet treat craving!  You can also store them in the freezer, but you want to let them thaw before eating.
