1. Honey & Pistachio
2. Goat Cheese with Walnuts & Honey
3. Orange & Ricotta
4. Mascarpone Cheese with Pomegranates & Honey
5. Vanilla Greek Yogurt & Blueberries
6. Peanut Butter & Chocolate
Don’t doubt me on this one, stuffed dates are simply amazing. Trust me, I’ve been a date doubter, but after these mascarpone stuffed medjool dates, I’m no longer turning up my nose.
Never tried a date before? You will surprise yourself with how caramel-y and creamy dates are especially when they’re stuffed.
Every time I use mascarpone cheese, I have to say it like Giada does. It’s more fun and makes me smile real big. I digress.
If you claim to not be a date fan, I have to ask if you’ve tried Medjool dates with the pits?
The pits are easy to remove, but they keep them more moist and so fresh. Serve one (or all) of these stuffed date combinations as a healthy appetizer or dessert at your next holiday party. Watch your friends and family be impressed and begging for the recipes! Enjoy!
