Peanut Butter (Almond, Cashew or your choice of nut butter)
Cut a large slit in the middle of each date, lengthwise. If using spices, in a small bowl put some peanut butter and a pinch of spices to taste. Mix the spice and peanut butter. Using a small spoon, spoon the peanut butter into the date. Do not overfill the date and adjust the amount used to taste. If you want a real decedent treat add a chocolate chip into the peanut butter and grind some peanuts to sprinkle over the date. Enjoy! They are best stored in the refrigerator.
If you have a sweet tooth and like chocolate; here is another date recipe I did for a substitute for Christmas cookies! Chocolate Truffles
Dates are versatile and can be used in savory appetizers; such as bacon wrapped dates. Maybe next month!
