Dates are a fruit from the Middle East. They're full of natural sugar vs. processed, and have quite a few health benefits. These dates are only four ingredients and definitely taste so much better than a real snickers bar! This sweet snack is simple, savory, and sweet.

How to make snickers stuffed dates

  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a sheet pan.

  • Stuff a little bit of peanut butter and 2-3 peanuts into each date. Press closed.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Place in the microwave and heat and stir in 30 second increments until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Dip each stuffed date in the melted chocolate and place on the sheet of parchment paper. (I recommend using a toothpick to dip the dates in the melted chocolate)
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  • Place in the freezer for about an hour. Enjoy!
