  • 18 dates soft sukari are the best!
  • 9 teaspoons pistachio butter
  • 1/4 cup pistachios chopped
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate couverture * see notes


  • Slice the dates open, remove the pit. Stuff them with 1/2 teaspoon of pistachio butter each.
  • Heat the chocolate in a double boiler (or microwave) until melted. And coat the dates one after another. The easiest way is to use tongs for this. Then add them onto a board covered with parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle the stuffed dates with the chopped pistachios and put them in the fridge for 20 minutes until the chocolate has set. And enjoy!


*I am using dark 65% couverture chocolate. You can also use chocolate chips or regular baking chocolate but then I recommend adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to thin it out.
Storage: Definitely leave them in the fridge. They will last a week, maybe? They never last more than 2-3 days at my house.
