Medjool Date Pecan Chocolate Truffles

Back to Recipes Total Time: 30 minutes Yields 12 Truffles


  • 12 Natural Delights Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 12 pecan halves
  • 5 oz. dark chocolate (70%), chopped
  • 2 1/2 oz. white chocolate, chopped


  1. Using a small paring knife, cut a slit into each Medjool date and carefully remove pits. Gently squeeze dates open and stuff a pecan half inside each. 
  2. Melt dark chocolate in the top of a double boiler, stirring frequently. Remove from heat when chocolate is almost fully melted; stir until fully melted. Be sure to keep any moisture, water or even steam away from the chocolate.
  3. Using a fork, dip dates in chocolate and place onto a wire cooling-rack. Let cool completely.
  4. Melt white chocolate in the top of a double broiler as directed above. Spoon into a small piping bag or a small resealable plastic bag; snip a small amount off the corner and drizzle over chocolate dipped dates. Let cool completely before serving.
