Dried Dates Filled with Mascarpone and Walnuts.  California or Turkish dates stuffed with mascarpone cheese and walnuts are topped with cocoa powder and orange rind is a no-bake, simple, and easy bite-size treat that make the perfect snack!

Stuffed with only 2 ingredients, these Medjool dates filled with mascarpone and walnuts are great to serve at gatherings too. 

They offer a wonderful complex of flavors, creamy and crunchy texture, bitter chocolate, and a touch of citrus.  So yummy, you can’t eat just one!

Made with only 5 ingredients: mascarpone cheese, walnuts, Medjool dried dates, unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa, and orange, you can whip up these bite-size healthy treats in minutes! 

Luckily, I have most of these ingredients on hand because these are commonly used in most Italian desserts.

My family loves eating dried dates.  They are packed with iron and are naturally delicious. Plus, they are loaded with an impressive list of essential vitamins and minerals. 

You can enjoy them alone as a snack, or turn them into these little delicious bite-size treats!

Sometimes I’ll prepare these dates in advance and refrigerate them so we will have something sweet to serve after dinner.

Medjool dates can be found in your dried fruits and nuts sections in most supermarkets, or you can easily buy them here on Amazon.

You can refrigerate these dates for up to 3 days, or freeze for 3 weeks. 

Serve them as little snacks, or dessert, or even as appetizers. Perfect to bring to any pot-luck party, picnic, or BBQ.

Everyone seems to enjoy them every time we serve these little cuties.  And they are best served chilled!

    Hey girls! My blogger friend Em got me hooked on medjool dates when she visited me last summer. She was always snacking on them and I finally tried one and loved it. I love opening them up and slathering them with almond butter. I'm totally going to try them with the mascarpone cheese and the walnuts though! Sounds delish. 🙂
