Chocolate Covered Dates with Almond butter

I am always open to new healthy snack ideas. These chocolate-covered stuffed dates are perfect for curbing my cravings and satisfying my sweet tooth.

I saw Emily Mariko on TikTok making these dates stuffed with almond butter. And I knew I had to try them. I’ve been putting them in my lunch box for two weeks now.

These chocolate-covered stuffed dates with almond butter make a perfect healthy snack, they are compact, chewy, sweet, crunchy. The perfect pick me up in the afternoon.

They are under 5 ingredients and you can vary them. You can stuff them with peanut butter, almond butter, Nutella, any type of nut butter you like. Although I recommend using high-quality dark chocolate, if you don’t like it you can use milk chocolate or white chocolate instead.

How to make Chocolate-covered dates with almond

Stuffed Dates Ingredients

  • dates (I used pitted dates, it was less work.)
  • almond butter (with no-added-sugar)
  • chopped almonds
  • 1/2 bar of dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • flaky salt (optional)

How to make stuffed dates

  1. If you can’t find pitted dates: Cut a slit in each date and remove the pit.
  2. Fill each date with almond butter (or your filling of choice) (about ½ teaspoon) and a sprinkle of crushed almond. Set aside.
  3. Place the dark chocolate and the coconut oil in a heatproof bowl. Place it over hot water, let it melt while stirring occasionally. OR Place the dark chocolate and the coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 15-second increments, stirring between each. It shouldn’t take longer than 1-2 minutes total.
  4. Using a toothpick or a fork (see in the video), dip each date into melted chocolate and use a spoon to coat the date until completely covered. Place the chocolate-covered date on a platter lined with parchment. Sprinkle flaky salt or remaining crushed almonds on top of each date.
  5. Place the dates in the freezer for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
  6. When the chocolate is set, they are ready to eat.
  7. They keep fresh in the fridge for up to a week. I usually make these on the weekends and snack on them during the week.
