Vegan Mofo Post #11: Cacao & Peanut Butter Stuffed Dates

Who needs candy bars when dates provide irresistible ooey gooey goodness?
It's National Dessert Day and a fine time to share a four ingredient sweet and salty snack.
Dates are a sweet, divine decadence that one can split open and shove anything inside. Or eat plainly.
Recently, on a trip to the new Burlington Coat Factory downtown, I bought a package of Food Empowerment Project recommended Essential Living Foods Cacao Powder, a steal at $3.99, another birthday present to myself.
Stuffing dates should also be a mandatory weekend escape. There are many, many ways to craft-- nutty butters, chocolate and coconut oil, or pumpkin nougat (later). With raw crunchy salted peanut butter, a generous sprinkle of fair trade bliss, and a bit of cinnamon spice, this little treat in the afternoon feels so special and nice.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Dates Ingredients and Preparation

8 dates
2 tablespoon Trader Joe's Chunky Peanut Butter
1 teaspoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Open up the dates and pit if needed.
Spoon in the peanut butter.
Sprinkle with cacao powder and cinnamon.

Not exactly a glamour shot, but these were good!

Close up shot. As scrumptious as candy.
