Helpful Tips To Make The Best Snickers Stuffed Dates!
Pitting The Dates! If the dates you bought aren’t already sliced you’ll need a sharp paring knife to carefully do so. After the pit is removed, there’s room for creamy peanut butter and crushed peanuts!
Piping Bag! Using a piping bag to pipe the peanut butter into the dates makes for a much cleaner, quicker process!
Toothpicks! I love using these to secure the dates once they’ve been filled with peanut butter and crushed peanuts. They also make dipping them in melted chocolate much easier as well!
Chilling The Dipped Dates! Once the dates are dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with more nuts they get placed into the freezer to chill. This quick and simple step ensures that the chocolate sets up nicely!

12 Medjool dates pitted
3 tablespoons chopped peanuts plus more for topping if desired
11.5 ounces extra dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons flaky salt for topping
Line a small pan or freezer-safe plate with parchment paper and set aside.
If the dates are not already sliced when purchased, use a paring knife to slice down one side and butterfly them open.
Add the peanut butter to a piping bag and cut off the tip. Pipe the peanut butter into one side of the date.
Top the peanut butter with crushed peanuts then close up the dates and secure with a toothpick.
Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a deep wide-mouthed glass and melt at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until fully melted.
Use the toothpicks to dip the dates into the chocolate and transfer to the parchment to set. Use another toothpick to help slide the original ones out.
Sprinkle with additional chopped nuts and flaky salt and drizzle with extra chocolate.
Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes until the chocolate has set.
Chocolate melting wafers may also be used in this recipe, if used, you do not need to add coconut oil.
Sugar-free peanut butter can be used, the dates add enough natural sweetness.
A dairy-free chocolate chip can be used to make this recipe vegan.
In my opinion, the flaky salt is a MUST. This changes the whole flavor of the treat and really makes it taste like a snickers bar. Otherwise you really just get sweet with a note of bitterness from the dark chocolate.
