An easy and delicious snack or dessert, great put on cookie trays! Serving dates stuffed with nuts and bowls of warm milk to visitors is a symbol of hospitality in North African homes. African, and posted for the ZWT.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Carefully remove the pits from the dates, replacing each one with a whole almond.
  2. Pour the honey into a heavy saucepan and place it on low heat.
  3. When the honey is liquid, add the cinnamon and pepper; stir well.
  4. Put the stuffed dates in the honey and stir gently to coat. Leave on very low heat for 5 minutes until the dates are hot. Watch the sauce so that it doesn't boil or even simmer.
  5. Serve warm, or let cool and eat. Enjoy!

OH MY GOODNESS these are GREAT. I like dates plain but this recipe is heaven. The cinnamon and pepper really adds to the flavor. Thanks for a new snack recipe. Made for ZWT7 and the Saucy Silverados.

Lip-smacking! What a tasty natural candy. Like the way the cinnamon and pepper add warm under tones to the sweet dates and honey. Made as written. Thanks for the post.

These sweet, syrupy-glistening morsels of heaven will have you eating way more dates than your RDI of sugar allows! I absolutely loved them. I subbed agave nectar for the honey and actually halved the amount (as well as the cinnamon), which seemed to work. Sticky and spicy and nutty- I munched a lot of extra nuts with mine! Thanks for posting!
