Let me start off by admitting that I have the worst sweet tooth, and it’s always worse at night.
The other night, as I was searching for a midnight snack, this delicious recipe popped into my head.
One of my go-to late night snacks are Dates filled with Peanut Butter and Cacao Nibs. Since Thomas and I always talk about how they taste kind of like a snickers bar, I decided to make a “candy bar” version of my favorite late night snack!
With only 5 ingredients — and no need for all the fancy equipment — I’m sure these treats will become a staple for satisfying your sweet tooth!
6 Large Medjool Dates
2 Tablespoons Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Nondairy Chocolate Chips
1/2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt Flakes
Slice into the dates lengthwise, and remove the pits. Then, fill the middle of the dates with crunchy peanut butter and set them aside in the freezer for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate, and stir in the coconut oil for a smooth chocolate dip.
Remove the peanut butter filled dates from the freezer and dip them in the melted chocolate. Place them back in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes.
Sprinkle with Sea Salt Flakes, and they’re ready to enjoy!
