Soft and chewy Healthy Almond chocolate covered dates Recipe!

Ingredients

  • 6 Medjool dates
  • 1/3 cup almonds: 2-3 almonds per date, depending on size of date
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 shredded almonds for topping

Instructions

    1. Cut the Medjool dates length-ways and remove pits.
    2. Replace pits with 2-3 almonds (use as many almonds as desired, this will vary based on size of date). Make sure the date is wrapped around the almonds tightly.
    3. Stick it in the freezer for 5 mins while you make the chocolate coating- This step is optional, however I think that it helps keep the dates dates nice and firm.
    4. Add the chocolate chips to a small microwave safe bowl.
    5. Microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds then take the bowl out and give it a stir.
    6. Place the bowl back in the microwave and cook for a additional 20 seconds or until the chocolate is melted.
    7. Dip the dates in the melted chocolate, and roll slowly until the top of each date is completely covered with chocolate.
    8. Place each chocolate covered date on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
    9. Sprinkle each date with shopped almond. I used a knife to thinly shred the almonds.
    10. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for at least 1 hour or until chocolate is firm.
    11. Store left over in the fridge.
    12. Enjoy!
