I LOVE dates. They are my go-to sweet treat. I have learned to store them in the refrigerator to keep them soft and plump (I also love the word ‘plump”). They are delicious on their own, but are ridiculously tasty wrapped in bacon, stuffed with sausage or cheese, and this recipe- with peanut butter and chocolate? OH. MY. DATES!

Like all my recipes, this one is stupid easy. My son Jonah pitched in and made these while I was cooking dinner. Look how cute he is!
Just take some dates, some dark chocolate, some peanut butter, and some flake sea salt, and you will have like the best dessert ever.


  • Medjool Dates
  • Dark chocolate
  • Peanut butter – make sure you buy the kind that is just peanuts, without any added sugar or oil. I prefer crunchy peanut butter for this recipe
  • Flake sea salt


If you have pits in your dates, remove them. Open the date slightly and place about ½ tsp peanut butter into the center. Push the date back together and insert a toothpick into the side to keep the date closed.Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.Using the toothpick to hold the date, dip it into the melted chocolate and set into onto a parchment lined dish. Sprinkle it with flake salt.Once all the dates are covered in chocolate, put the dish into the refrigerator and let the chocolate set. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve. Then eat them all up!
