Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates

Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates Dipped in Chocolate. You might be think, “What are these dates stuffed with?” Good question! Medjool dates are slit open and the pit is removed. They are then stuffed or filled with a few tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice cream cheese. Semi-sweet chocolate chips are melted and one half of the filled dates are dipped into the melted chocolate.

Bug Anyone?

The combination of flavors might sound strange to you and maybe somewhat scary to eat but they are really delicious. The pumpkin pie spice cream cheese goes perfectly with the sweetness of the dates. The fact that they are dipped into chocolate is a star on top of the Christmas tree to me and the mini chocolate chip eyes make them just plain cute. Dates can be filled with any “flavor” of cream cheese that you like. Strawberries and Cream flavored cream cheese is another favorite.
