  • Cut open the dates and remove the stones if needed.
  • Spoon in a teaspoon of almond butter and then squish in a raspberry.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in a small bowl over a saucepan of boiling water – this should take about 3 or 4 minutes. Stir well.
  • Dip the stuffed dates into the chocolate and place on a lined baking tin or tray.
  • Sprinkle with the raspberry sprinkles and pop in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until the chocolate is set.


  • You can use any nut butter – so try cashew, almond, pistachio or hazelnut butter to change things up. Also switch raspberries for goji berries or dried mulberries if you prefer.
  • Store in the fridge for 4 days or in the freezer for 3 months.
  • Nut-free: switch the almond butter to tahini, sunflower butter or hulled hemp seeds or use a nut-free chocolate spread or mini chocolate drops.
  • Dairy and soya-free: choose a dairy and soya free chocolate brand.
