Description

The sweet and savory flavors of these dates pair well with salted nuts, soft cheeses or cured meats (like prosciutto). Try adding them to a cheese or charcuterie plate!

Ingredients

8
medjool dates
2 teaspoons
tahini
1 ounce
chocolate, semisweet
1/2 teaspoon
vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon
cinnamon, ground
1 pinch
sesame seeds (toasted (optional))

Instructions

Using a paring knife, cut a slit the length of each date and slide out the pits. Scoop ¼ teaspoon tahini into the hollow of each date where the pit was, closing the date to contain the stuffing. Place the dates on a plate or in a tub.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave or over simmering water on the stove. Stir in the oil and cinnamon. Drizzle a little bit of the chocolate mixture over each date and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if using.

Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until firm.
