April RECIPE: Date Snickers

These Date Snickers are perfect when craving a candy bar but looking for a treat with more good-for-you ingredients. This 4-ingredient date snickers recipe splits open sticky dates and stuffs them with creamy peanut butter and crunchy chopped nuts, all coated in rich dark chocolate, creating a delicious medley of flavors and textures.

Round white plate with 12 date snickers topped with crushed peanuts with a small jar of peanut butter and chocolate pieces nearby.

  1. I made these delicious Date Snickers last month and there were very good. They weren’t hard to make and believe me they were a crowd pleaser!

  2. These are a great substitution to a snicker. Healthier too! I like to call them “A Snickered Date”. As Yumna says, SO GOOD!

  3. These date snickers are the absolute indulgent pretty much guilt free snack ever!…..I made a batch & gave some to a friend to try & she couldn’t believe how amazing they tasted & has passed on the recipe to all her family & friends as well! This is a definite keeper…..I now always have a bowl in my fridge for my desert fix after dinner with my cuppa. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe
