These Biscoff Stuffed Dates are not only delicious but super fun to make with the kids and with the public holiday tomorrow (and if you are lucky enough to have made it a long weekend), I think this is a perfect activity to keep them occupied for a while. And do keep some aside to spoil Dad (or yourself) on Sunday.

I have a total love affair with Lotus Biscoff. I was only recently introduced to the biscuits and then one day discovered the spread. Only to later discover the spread is available as smooth and as chunky. So needless to say, there is always a stash of biscuits and spread in the house. If you live in Cape Town, head to Bake and Nut in Pinelands. There is a shelf at the entrance dedicated to Biscoff biscuits and spreads. Just make sure you get there before me!

These Biscoff Stuffed Dates were inspired by all the stuffed dates you see during Ramadan and Eid here in the UAE. I moved here to explore new career opportunities, dividing my time between Cape Town and Abu Dhabi, immersing myself in the culture, foods and traditions of the region.

Making these stuffed dates are super simple. Slice open the dates and remove the pip. Using a teaspoon and stuff the cavity of the date with the Lotus Biscoff spread and gently close the date. (It does get a bit messy). Have some melted chocolate ready and gently pierce the date with a toothpick and dip the stuffed dates in the melted chocolate. Place on a baking sheet. Bash a few Lotus Biscoff biscuits and sprinkle the crumb over the dates before the chocolate has set. Set aside and enjoy once the chocolate has hardened.
