My whole family devoured this easy to make Moroccan dessert the other night when we had our Moroccan dinner adventure. My husband when he saw the stuffed dates commented "These look like footballs!" I laughed "Perfect for a superbowl party!" He agreed.
They do look rather like footballs...
But the taste. Wow. What an explosion of sweet chewiness! These are addictive!
Here's how my son and I made them.
Dates Stuffed With Honeyed Almonds
Put the almonds in a pot. You'll use as many almonds as you have dates. If you want to caramleize a few more for your kids to much on when they're cool, it's not a bad idea.
Adults only here! Cook the almonds with a couple tablespoons honey until caramelized. Cool on parchment paper.
Split the dates lengthwise and remove the pits.
Now comes the fun part. Feel free to let your child(ren) help stuff the honeyed almonds in the dates.
Yum! A tasty healthier dessert perfect for a superbowl or any party!
