Israeli Stuffed Dates
Recipe By:Bina E.
“This chocolate-covered, nut-filled date candy is straight from Israel, an idea I received from my Yemenite neighbor. It’s easy and delicious!”
- 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 25 pitted Medjool dates
- 25 pecan halves
- 2 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut (optional)
- Place the chocolate in a glass or plastic bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or until almost melted. Stir until smooth.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Stuff each date with a pecan half and place onto the baking sheet. Drizzle the stuffed dates with melted chocolate, then sprinkle with coconut. Place into freezer, and freeze for 1 hour before serving.
