Tahini, pistachio and rose stuffed Medjool dates



A less sweet very of these peanut butter and chocolate stuffed mejools. I adore tahini and the smooth earthiness really suits the sweet and chewy medjool date. Stuffed with chopped pistachios and scattered with dried rose petals, this classic middle eastern flavour combination is a taste sensation - so much going on with every bite!

Good to know:

  • Store ready-to-go in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week

  • Can be frozen for a hard toffee texture

  • Make sure they're medjool dates as they are much larger, juicer and plumper than regular dates. They can be more expensive, I buy in bulk from Aldi
