  • 15 Dates
  • 30 Roasted & salted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil


  • Cut a slit in each date and remove the pit. In place of the pit press in one or two peanuts.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl over a pan containing a little water (bain-marie) or directly in a small saucepan on a very low heat. When melting it directly you have to be very careful it doesn’t burn.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, carefully take the stuffed date and drop it (cut side up) into the melted chocolate and roll gently to coat the date. Remove with a spoon and set on a plate. Wait until the chocolate has hardened.
