These Medjool Date Chocolate Tahini Bites deliver both a wow presentation and wow flavor with this popular ingredient trio.


  • 12 Natural Delights® Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup 70% dark chocolate, melted
  • 5 tablespoons tahini (approximately 1/2 - 1 teaspoon per date)
  • 1/4 cup bright green pistachios, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon flake salt


  1. Open the Medjool date lengthwise and fill each date with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon tahini. Close each date and place in the freezer for about an hour.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the lowest setting. When the chocolate has almost completely melted, remove from heat and gently stir.
  3. Remove dates from freezer. Using a slotted spoon or dipping tools, dip the dates one at a time in the melted chocolate and place on parchment paper. Before the chocolate sets, top with bright green pistachios and a pinch of flake salt.

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
