Ingredients

10 Medjool dates

5tsp Whole Earth Smooth Peanut Butter

150g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)

½tsp demerara sugar, to decorate

Method

1
Use a sharp knife to make a lengthwise cut in each date. Gently lift out the stones and discard them, keeping the rest of the date in one piece. Arrange the dates on a baking tray lined with nonstick paper.
2
Stuff each date with ½tsp of the peanut butter, pushing it down gently to fill the gap left by the stone.
3
Place the filled dates in the freezer for 20 mins to firm up.
4
Meanwhile, put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water – don’t allow the base to touch the surface of the water.
5
Remove from the heat before the chocolate is completely melted, then stir until it is smooth and glossy.
6
Take the dates from the freezer. Put 1 in the bowl and cover with chocolate – use 2 small spoons to turn it over until completely coated.
7
Return to the tray and sprinkle with a pinch of the demerara sugar, to decorate.
8
Repeat with the remaining dates, chocolate and demerara.
9
Return to the freezer for 30 mins. Enjoy straight from the freezer, or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
