Ingredients

  • 25 medjool dates pitted
  • 1 cup roasted salted almonds or 50 almonds
  • 8 oz dark chocolate 70-90%
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Sea Salt
  • Coconut flakes
  • Chia Seeds
  • Chopped nuts

Instructions

  • Begin by inserting 2 almonds in every date. Secure with a toothpick and set aside on a sheet of parchment paper.
  • Using the stovetop, melt dark chocolate and coconut oil inside a small saucepan over medium low heat. (alternatively you can use a double boiler or microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is smooth). Remove chocolate from the stove.
  • Dip each of the date/almonds into chocolate mixture until completely covered. Let the residual chocolate drip back into the pot. Place on parchment paper to dry.
  • Sprinkle with any toppings you like. I used sea salt and coconut flakes.
  • Place inside the freezer for 15 minutes (or fridge for 25), and remove toothpicks.
  • Store inside an air tight container in the fridge.
