🥣 How to make (step-by-step photos)

1️⃣ Step One: Prep dates and pan

The first step is to prepare a baking sheet to make the stuffed dates. To do this, simply place a protective layer like a silicone baking mat or a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Prep dates by placing them on the lined baking sheet and then making a thin slit about halfway through each date lengthwise, making sure not to cut them in half completely.

Remove the inner date pit and open them up a bit so you can stuff them.

2️⃣ Step Two: Stuff dates with peanuts and peanut butter

Add a sprinkle of peanuts inside the dates, then add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.

4️⃣ Step Four: Melt chocolate and coat dates

Melt chocolate chips by either heating them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, or by heating them on a double boiler, which means heating them in a glass bowl set atop of pot of boiling water (for a smoother melted chocolate).

When the chocolate is melted, use a spoon to either drizzle the dates with chocolate or dip them into the bowl of melted chocolate and place back on the lined baking sheet.

Then sprinkle a few pieces of flaky sea salt on top.
