Snickers Bites

…and we love the 2-minute version of this recipe, skip melting the chocolate and, instead, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the nut-butter-filled date. No need to freeze – just eat immediately and enjoy!


  • 12 Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup crunchy all-natural almond butter (or your favorite nut or seed butter), refrigerated to firm-up
  • 2 Tbs coarsely chopped peanuts (or other favorite nut or seed)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • sea salt flakes, to taste (optional)


  1. Using a paring knife, carefully cut a lengthwise slit into each date and remove the pits.
  2. Fill each date with chilled nut butter and place on a small baking sheet.
  3. Freeze for 15 minutes to set.
  4. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips by microwaving for 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval.
  5. Drizzle the dates with melted chocolate and sprinkle with chopped peanuts (and sea salt flakes if desired).
  6. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers in a sealed container.
