  • 8 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almonds


  • If necessary, remove pits by slicing into the dates on one side with a paring knife and gently prying the date open. Press date closed after removing pit.
  • Chop almonds into fine pieces. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Place chocolate chips into a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 1 minute. Stir chocolate chips and microwave again at 20 second intervals until chips are completely melted.
  • Coat the date in the melted chocolate, making sure all sides are covered.
  • Place the chocolate coated date into the bowl of chopped almonds and coat well, gently pressing the nuts into the chocolate.
  • Place nutty chocolate coated dates on a plate and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
  • Store leftover dates in the fridge.


  • Use whatever chopped nuts you prefer: walnuts, cashews, pecans, etc.
  • I use dark chocolate, but this will also work with other chocolates.
  • Sprinkle some sea salt on the chocolate coated date for the sweet/salty combination!
