Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates

So I have recently fallen back in love with DATES! I used to think they where a little boring and you couldn’t do much with them, how I was wrong!! I will be doing a lot more recipes with dates to show you all how diverse they are!

What I love about this recipe is that you can make in batches and keep them in your fridge or for when you need a quick healthy snack (or small desert).  The recipe is also very diverse, meaning you can add any nut nutter and crushed nuts, basically use up whats in your cupboard!

The nuts on the outside add that extra crunch and also a great way to add protein and certain nutrients to your diet
