As the holidays are approaching, different kinds of desserts will be served at parties. Among them are stuffed dates. With this recipe, you can definitely impress your family, co-workers, and friends!

Both easy and affordable to make, you could make this lovely treat a day or two before a party and easily set out when your guests arrive.

This simple yet addictive Honey-Cinnamon Cream Cheese mixture comes together easily, leaving plenty of time for piping into naturally sweet and sticky dates. 

There is no need for special tools for piping the mixture. A snipped tip of a zip-top plastic bag is enough to be used as a piping bag. Once these dates are stuffed, they can be given a quick roll in chopped roasted pecans, which can add a bit of texture and crunch. They can be made prior, which is ideal for holiday gatherings when you’re looking to do as much as you can before your guests walk in the door.

These Honey-Cinnamon Cream Cheese Stuffed Dates are already magnificent to set out on a platter on their own, but we can also add them to snack boards, among other treats, dried fruits, nuts, and jams.

Also, we are adding a twist! By adding your choice of CBD oil, you can definitely personalize this perfect snack or appetizer to your taste.
