Stuffed Medjool Dates (V, GF)

Stuffed medjool dates are my favourite snack when my husband and I are on a road trip. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to stop for a decent lunch. So instead we buy some food at a grocery store near where the road takes us. I stock up with soft medjool dates and some good peanut butter. My favourite peanut butter for this recipe is Richer Roast from Meridian. I take a medjool date and a teaspoon of peanut butter. Then I pit the medjool date and put the peanut butter where the pit was.

I like to make things a little more complex in my kitchen at home. I still stuff the medjool date with peanut butter, I like to add some melted chocolate around it and sprinkle the chocolate with roasted crushed hazelnuts.

Ingredients
  

Simple stuffed medjool dates:

  • 10 medjool dates pitted
  • 60 g (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) peanut butter (I like Richer Roast from Meridian)

Peanut butter chocolate hazelnut stuffed medjool dates:

  • 10 medjool dates pitted
  • 60 g (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) peanut butter (I like Rich Roast from Meridian)
  • 25 g Lindt 70% chocolate melted
  • 30 g hazelnuts roasted and crushed

Instructions
 

Peanut butter chocolate hazelnut stuffed medjool dates:

  • Roast hazelnuts at 180 °C for 10 min. Leave them to cool a little then rub their skin off with your hands. Crush them with the back of a fork into small pieces.
  • While hazelnuts are roasting prepare a plate and line it with baking paper.
  • Pit all medjool dates (choose soft ones that are going to be the most enjoyable to eat). Be careful not to break halves of medjool dates apart. If that happens, don't worry it will still hold its shape after stuffing it with peanut butter.
  • Take one teaspon of your favourite peanut butter and put it in the empty hole of one medjool date. Close the medjool date, gently pressing halves together. Repeat the same with the rest of medjool dates.
  • Slowly melt chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. Take one medjool date, holding it by the lower end and dip the upper half in the melted chocolate. While the chocolate is still wet coat it with crushed roasted hazelnuts. Place stuffed medjool date on a baking paper. Repeat the same with the rest of medjool dates.
  • When all medjool dates are stuffed and coated with chocolate and hazelnuts, put the plate in the refrigerator for about 20 min for the chocolate to harden.
  • Keep these sweets in the fridge but take them out about 20 to 30 minutes before serving so that they become a little bit softer and more enjoyable to eat.
