Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 Teaspoon
  • 1 Cookie sheet Line with Parchment Paper or Thin Layer of Butter to Prevent Sticking
  • 1 Paring knife
  • 1 Small bowl Microwave safe
  • 1 Whisk Or Fork
  • 1 Wooden Cutting Board


  • ½ Cup Peanut Butter I like Organic, All Natural
  • 1 Bag or Container Pitted Dates I like Medjool
  • ½ Cup Lilly's Dark Chocolate Chips Or Your Favorite Brand without Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Sprinkles


  • Gather all your tools/ingredients first. Yes first;)... saves so much time.
  • Cut a slit into each date.
  • Using a teaspoon, stuff dates with peanut butter, about 1/2 to 1/3 teaspoon each.
  • In a small bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter until silky smooth. Do this in 30 second increments to avoid burning chocolate.
  • Dip and roll dates in the melted chocolate and place on cookie sheet.
  • For Easter, sprinkle a few Sprinkles on each for color. Crushed nuts or coconut would be delicious as well. Place in refrigerator to set chocolate.
  • Enjoy your healthy Easter eggs anytime of the year!
