Chocolate Covered & Walnut Stuffed Dates


My friends and I recently started game night.  Crazy it took us this long to make game night a regular event.

Nouns (hands down best game ever - we made it up studying abroad in Italy), Apples to Apples, Catch Phrase, and a little food/wine.  Great mid-week treat.

As an quick and easy treat I decided to make...

Chocolate Covered and Walnut Stuffed Dates
Note:  I decided not to quantify the recipe.  Make a little or as much as you want.  Figure about 1 walnut half per date.

Ingredients
Dates
Walnuts
Chocolate Chips
Orange Zest
Salt
Olive Oil  

Directions
Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave.  Cut a slit in the side of the date and remove the pit.  Sauté walnut pieces in a little olive oil, salt, and orange zest.  Finely chop 1/4 of the walnuts.  Stuff dates with the larger walnut pieces pressing to close slit.  Dip half the date in melted chocolate.  Sprinkle a little finely chopped walnuts on top of the date.  Place date on parchment paper or foil.  Repeat with remaining dates.  Place dates in freezer for about 5 minutes or until chocolate has solidified.
