Description:
As a child I always avoided dates; to me, they looked a little like shrivelled cockroaches and I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to eat them. Now I can’t imagine ever refusing a delicious, sticky, sweet date. Both my boys have always loved dates but I do think stuffing them and adding some pretty topping makes them look a lot more appealing. I wonder if I had been offered stuffed dates as a child I would have been less repulsed! These stuffed dates were very popular in our house over this holiday season. I love that they are easy to prepare.
Peanut butter stuffed dates
Peanut butter stuffed dates are a super delicious dessert or snack. They are so simple to make and only require two ingredients (with additional toppings if desired). These stuffed dates were very popular in our house over this holiday season. I love that they are easy to prepare. They can be made in advance and can be enjoyed alone but are also perfect added to fruit platters or as part of a cheese platter.

To remove the stone from fresh dates you can simply push them out with your fingers. When making stuffed dates I prefer to make a slit with a knife and then get the boys to remove the stones for me. Be careful when making the slit that you do not cut the date in half; you just want to make a crevice for which to add the peanut butter.
After the stones are removed you just need to fill them. I find one teaspoon of peanut butter is perfect for one date and I always use natural peanut butter that contains no added sugar, salt, or oil. You can easily replace the peanut butter with different nut butter or if you are looking for a nut-free version you could use tahini.
