Then, stuff the dates with smooth peanut butter, and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
Finally, we will melt some semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips. (I like to do this in the microwave in 30s increments until melted). Drizzle the melted chocolate over the dates in zig-zag pattern.
Pop everything in the fridge to chill, for at least 30 minutes.
