They can even can be a replacement for caramel in some recipes like Caramel Apple Dip and Samaos Turtle Bites. These stuffed dates are so easy to make and are the perfect appetizer or finger-food for your next party! Since they are meant to be small bites and are mostly carbohydrates and fat, enjoy one or two in moderation as a sweet treat.
