Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to maintain the freshness of product for up to one week.

Instructions

1. Begin by finely chopping the pistachios and breaking the freeze-dried strawberries into little bits.

2. Carefully open the pitted dates and use a small spoon to fill each cavity inside with almond butter.

3. Set up a double boiler by bringing a saucepan with a couple of inches of water to a gentle simmer. Place a heatproof bowl on top, add the chocolate chips, and melt until smooth and creamy. Alternatively, use a microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate chips in 30-second intervals. Add ghee or coconut oil, stir well.

4. Using a fork, dip almond butter-stuffed dates into the melted chocolate, ensuring they're completely coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off. Place the chocolate-coated dates onto a cutting board (or a baking sheet) lined with parchment paper.

What a fantastic dessert. I'm fine with the first 3 ingredients on their own, but the strawberry is the cherry on top! :)
