Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Dates
      • You can't stuff a date without a date! We love using our pitted option for these, but whole work just as well! Just be sure to remove the pit๐Ÿ˜‰If you're running low on your stock of dates, you can buy some in bulk right here or in our 2 pack right here!
    2. Peanut Butter
      • We went with creamy, but if you want some crunch...go crunchy๐Ÿ˜‰ Whether you're creamy or crunchy we recommend using a peanut butter with no added oils or sugars. Some of our favorites are Wild Friends and Georgia Grinders! 
    3. Peanuts
      • These will give us that crunch we all love in a snickers candy bar! Roasted/unroasted/salt/no salt work perfect, it's all on your personal preference. 
    4. Dark Chocolate Chips
    5. Coconut Oil
