Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Stuffed Dates

This is one of my go-to healthy candy recipes. I make this when I am craving something sweet and chocolate to soothe my sweet tooth. This delicious “Candy” recipe is super easy to make and keeps in the fridge for about two weeks. I usually make a small batch at a time so that way I don’t eat them all in one sitting. You only need 5 ingredients for these… Here is what you will need.


5 Dates ( pitted and sliced in half but not completely leaving the bottom attached)
peanut butter ( or other types of nut or seed butter)
1 heaping tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 heaping tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp honey or another liquid sweetener


  1. Take your dates and cut one half of the side of the date to remove the pith and set aside. Do not cut the date completely in half.
  2. Using a spoon take a little of the nut/seed butter and place on the inside of the date and gently press the date closed but not completely together, leaving the nut/seed butter on the inside. Set aside until all of the dates are done.
  3. In a small container or bowl combine the melted coconut oil, sweetener of choice and the cacao powder and stir until smooth.
  4. Using a fork place one date on the fork and into the chocolate mixture and move around until all of the dates are completely covered in the chocolate mixture.
  5. Place on a plate and let chill 10 minutes to set the chocolate on top.
  6. ENJOY!
