Sweet Stuffed Dates, Christmas Candy Recipes

 



Dad's Sweet Stuffed Dates

I'm going to take liberty to call these simple to make Christmas candy's Dad's Sweet Stuffed Dates, cause when I was a child that's what they were. 40+ years ago our Gram (my father's mother), my sister and I would make these every year. We'd carefully package them in a white box with waxed paper. We knew that he knew what was in that white box and he looked forward to them every year.

While I was thinking back on this recipe I looked online for it. I never realized there may be a Middle Eastern influence with this recipe. I guess the use of the peanut and granulated sugar was an Americanized version. A Middle Eastern twist would be to stuff the dates, or Medjools as they are called, with almonds, pecans or walnuts and roll them in powdered sugar.


















Dad's Sweet Stuffed Dates

Pitted Dates

Jumbo Roasted Peanuts (in the shell)
Granulated Sugar

Open the peanuts. Discard shell and skin. Stuff each date with peanut (or two) to fill. Roll stuffed dates in granulated sugar.

Place on wax paper in sealed container.

There, literally only three steps to make Christmas Magic.
