  • Parchment Paper


  • 12 Medjool Dates, Pitted
  • ½ Cup Dark Chocolate
  • ¼ Cup Raw Almonds
  • ¼ Cup Shredded Coconut


  • Start by cutting down the middle of each date. (The long way.) Remove the pit and place on a parchment paper lined plate or baking sheet.
  • Next, stuff each date with raw almonds. (Or any nut!)
  • Melt dark chocolate in the microwave in 20 second increments until it is melted.
  • Finally, dip stuffed dates in dark chocolate and sprinkle with shredded coconut.
  • Place dates on parchment paper and place in the refrigerator or freezer to set.


Expert Tips

  • If you don't want to completely cover the dates in chocolate, you could always drizzle it on top instead of dipping them.
  • Place stuffed dates on a parchment paper lined plate or baking sheet for easy clean up. Once they're chilled, remove and add to storage container.
  • Let chocolate dry for about 30 seconds before adding shredded coconut or it will absorb into the chocolate.
