Stuffed Dates Variations & Tips
Always use Medjool dates. It’s very important to use medjool dates instead of the other popular variety deglet because they are bigger more plum with gooey flesh very reminiscent of caramel.
Endless filling possibilities. I went over the top with a cannoli-inspired filling flavored with pistachio but the classic way is simply just nut butter on the inside like peanut butter or almond butter. Nutella would also be great as a filling or even savory things like goat cheese!
Add refined coconut oil to the melted chocolate. Mixing the coconut oil with the chocolate it will help the chocolate shell be crisper instead of soft and using refined it will take away that coconut taste.
Store them in the fridge. Because of the chocolate shell and dairy filling, I recommend storing them in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month
