Serves:

Andrea says: “Dates are nature’s candy, full of vitamins, minerals, and fibre! I love them for baking, smoothies, and just on their own. But more than anything, I love them in these decadent, all-natural Caramel Chewies!”

Ingredients

  • 12 Medjool dates
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup crushed peanuts or slivered almonds (optional)
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Method

1. Slice each date open enough to remove the pit. Fill each date with 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter or almond butter. Arrange the dates on a baking sheet or plate.

2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stir to create a smooth chocolate sauce, and drizzle over each date.

3. Sprinkle each date with the crushed peanuts or slivered almonds, if using, and a tiny bit of salt.

4. Freeze the dates for at least 1 hour for the best texture before serving. The dates can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 30 days.
