Nut Butter & Chocolate Dates

This recipe is a real crowd pleaser. And it's also insanely easy.

I like to make 12 or so at a time (feel free to make more or less) so that you have them on hand when the mood strikes. However they are equally fabulous to prepare and consume on the spot. Your call.

4 ingredients. Mix them up to suit you best.

You also have a chocolate variation with this recipe too. For me, the choice comes down to how dirty I feel like getting my hands. Read on.
