Salted Tahini Caramel Stuffed Dates Covered in Dark & White Chocolate

337

If you haven’t tried tahini caramel what are you waiting for? It is subtly sweet and earthy and pairs perfectly with chocolate. I live in a house divided between white and dark chocolate. When I was testing this recipe my daughter wanted me to make these with dark chocolate because she thought it paired better with the caramel. My husband on the other hand was a fan of the white chocolate. Thus I am giving you the option in this recipe with both. Plus the contrasting chocolate drizzle looks fancy as a topping. If you decide to use one over the other you should be able to work with 1 cup of the chocolate of your choice to make this recipe.

If you are using white chocolate I encourage you to use a store-bought variety. I have yet to find a homemade vegan white chocolate recipe that can give you an adequate coating when dipping into the chocolate. I used the King David brand in my recipe.
