Stuffed Dates with Pistachios and White Chocolate

Stuffed dates coated with white chocolate

Preparation Time:

- 15 minutes


- 12 stuffed dates


- 12 large Medjool dates, pitted

- 24 whole pistachios (2 per date)

- 8 ounces (225g) white chocolate, chopped


1. Prepare the Dates:

- Carefully slit each date lengthwise with a knife and remove the pit.

- Rinse the dates under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.

2. Stuff with Pistachios:

- Take two whole pistachios and insert them into the cavity of each date where the pit was removed.

3. Melt the White Chocolate:

- Place the chopped white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.

- Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth. Alternatively, use a double boiler on the stove.

4. Coat the Dates:

- Dip each stuffed date into the melted white chocolate, ensuring it's completely coated.

- Use a fork to lift the date out of the chocolate, allowing excess chocolate to drip off.

5. Chill in the Fridge:

- Place the coated dates on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

- Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until the white chocolate coating is firm.

6. Serve:

- Once chilled, remove from the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes.


- Nutty Bliss: Replace pistachios with almonds, hazelnuts, or walnuts for a different nutty flavor.

- Fruity Twist: Add a dried fruit, such as a small piece of apricot or cranberry, along with the pistachios for a burst of fruity sweetness.

- Spiced Infusion: Mix a pinch of cinnamon, cardamom, or nutmeg into the melted white chocolate for a spiced twist.

- Coconut Delight: After coating with white chocolate, roll the dates in shredded coconut for an extra layer of flavor and texture.

- Dark Chocolate Indulgence: Swap white chocolate for dark chocolate for a richer, more intense flavor.

Enjoy these stuffed dates with pistachios and white chocolate, experimenting with different variations to suit your taste! Don't they also make some cute easter eggs that are healthy alternatives to the store-bought ones? :)
