Date Bark

If you’re even remotely connected to the world of social media, you’ve probably come across the latest culinary sensation that’s taking TikTok and Instagram by storm – Date Bark! It’s the kind of viral trend that’s impossible to ignore, and as someone who loves experimenting with new recipes and flavors, I just had to try it for myself.

What’s not to love about Date Bark? It’s the perfect marriage of natural sweetness, crunchy goodness, and a touch of creativity. And the best part? It’s incredibly easy to make, making it an ideal treat for anyone, regardless of your cooking expertise.


  • 10-12 pitted Medjool dates
  • 2-4 tablespoons creamy or drippy peanut butter (adjust to your preference)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Split dates open and press down each one down onto the sheet, making sure they overlap a little so they stick together.
  2. Drizzle peanut butter on top and use a spoon so spread it across the dates. Sprinkle on chopped peanuts. Adjust both the peanut butter and chopped peanuts according to your taste/how much you like peanut butter (I used extra ;))
  3. Melt chocolate with coconut oil and drizzle it on. Use a spoon to spread it around so it covers everything.
  4. Sprinkle on flaky sea salt and pop the baking sheet into the freezer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate has set. Remove from the freezer, chop the bark into 10 pieces and enjoy.
  5. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. If you’re storing in the freezer, the dates will get pretty hard so let the bark sit out a few minutes before biting into it.
