24 dates (serving size: 1 stuffed date)

This combination of dusky dates and tinted marzipan is a North African tradition.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut a lengthwise slit down the center, but not through, each date; remove seeds.

Step 2

Sprinkle food coloring over marzipan, if desired; gently knead 4 to 5 times or until color is incorporated into marzipan. Divide marzipan mixture evenly among dates; stuff into slits. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

These are a decadent and dainty confection - a perfect sweet bite, with a blend of the date and almond flavors. You really only need 1 or 2 to satisfy.

A friend of mine served these for the appetizer course of our african-themed CL supper club dinner. I thought they were good though very almondy due to the marzipan. They are simple and pretty tasty. I don't know if I will make these myself but I did enjoy eating them!
