Double Dipped Almond Stuffed Chocolate Dates

Double Dipped Almond Stuffed Chocolate Dates

I love to experiment with sweet recipes, but for a quick sweet snack I love dates. They are so deliciously sweet. For the holiday season or when I have guests coming over I often make these delicious double dipped almond stuffed chocolate dates. Even if I make a dessert I offer these at the table and they are gone in minutes.

These chocolate covered stuffed dates are easy to make and always leave a good impression. Medjool dates on their own are an amazing natural sweet treat, but almost anything sweet gets better with a bit of a crunch and a crispy layer of chocolate, don’t you think?

You could use regular dates for this, but they will not be so big and soft like Medjool dates.

If you’re not a fan of almonds you can replace them with any other nut. I also like these stuffed with walnuts, pistachios, macadamia, cashews or hazelnuts.

If you are going to make these almond stuffed double dipped chocolate dates I would love to know! Leave a comment below or let me know on Facebook or Instagram. Oh and don’t forget to tag your picture #thegreencreator on Instagram. I’d love to see your recreations!

These Double Dipped Almond Stuffed Chocolate Dates are such a treat and so easy to make. Nothing beats the sweetness of dates with a crunchy nut and chocolate.
Recipe type: snack, sweet, dessert, treat
Cuisine: vegan, glutenfree, dairyfree, plant-based, vegetarian
Serves: 5 sweets
  • 5 Medjool dates
  • 5 almonds, cut in chunks
  • 2 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
  • 200 gr dark (+75%) chocolate
  • 5 teaspoons almond butter (if crunchy you can skip the almonds)
  1. Open the Medjool date lengthways and remove the stone. Try to split the date down the middle, but it doesn’t matter too much if you mess this up.
  2. Insert the almond chunks and almond butter in the middle (or use crunchy almond butter instead) then fold the date back and squeeze it to close.
  3. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes while you melt the chocolate.
  4. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan with boiling water (double boiler).
  5. Coat/dip all the dates in the chocolate. Either dip and roll in the chocolate or spoon over the chocolate while holding on a fork.
  6. Place on a plate and return to the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
  7. Cover again in chocolate.
  8. Place in the freezer again to set.
  9. Store in the fridge as they will melt if stored outside for long.
  10. Sprinkle with cacao powder when serving.
You can triple or quadruple the dips if you want a thicker chocolate shell. I find twice to be just chocolatey enough.

Truth be told, so far I probably have been eating buckwheat more sweet than savory. If you only use buckwheat...
