Five Stuffed Date Ideas For Iftar
Coconut ‘Bounty’ Dates
Stuff a date with an almond, dip it into a bowl of melted dark or milk chocolate and then coat it with desiccated/ shredded coconut.
Stuff a date with crushed walnuts and dip it in a bowl of melted milk chocolate, and then coat it in a bowl full of cocoa powder.
Note: Milk over dark chocolate is preferred here as it will balance out the bitterness
Peanut Butter + Chocolate
For all the peanut butter and chocolate combo fans out there, you need to try this! Stuff a date with a generous dollop of peanut butter, coat with dark or milk chocolate and add an almond on top.
Note: Melt some chocolate on top for decoration
Stuffed Dried Apricot
This is very simple and basic but super delicious and definitely an energy booster. Stuff half a dried apricot in a date. This step is up to you, you can coat with chocolate or have it plain.
The name says it all! Stuff crushed almonds, walnuts and pistachios in a date, dip in melted white chocolate and coat with pistachios or shredded coconut (optional).
Pop them in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours so that the chocolate coating won't melt and temper for at least 1 hour before serving.
Can be eaten as a snack or even better devoured with qahwa or black tea.
