These dates are rich and addicting. You'll almost feel guilty for indulging... almost. I pick up medjool dates (or any other kind of dates) from the farmer's market, but they're becoming readily available at most grocery stores. In this recipe you can use any kind of nut butter you like, as long as it's of the thicker variety, otherwise you'll end up with it everywhere. At the end, a light sprinkling of sea salt adds a little bit of crunch to the finished product while creating a contrast to the sweet dates and nuts.

Chunky sea salt
Slice open one side of the date, removing the pit.
With a spoon, fill the inside of the date with about half a tablespoon of nut butter. Be careful – too much nut butter will make a huge mess, and will make the dates extremely rich.
Once all of the dates are filled, arrange them on a plate and sprinkle sparingly with a flavorful sea salt.
