I received these wonderful dates to try. Mainly my experience growing up was dates in a hard block, date squares (which I still love) and that was about it. Later in life, I have come to love, appreciate and cook a lot more with dates, but never have I seen such big, beautiful, glorious Medjool dates as these from natural delight

I have done stuffed dates coated with chocolate like these Sweet Or, a more traditional approach with Maple-Date Bars, another huge hit! Biting into one of these beauties is a treat onto their own, they are so sweet and only slightly chewy as they almost melt in your mouth. They are huge with wonderfully shiny skins. Instantly I wanted to stuff them with something a bit spicy to meld with that sweet chocolate flavor, so let's begin with step by step photos
