  1. Cut or spread open pitted dates
  2. Fill each date with about ½ tsp of peanut butter or nut butter of your choice
  3. Crush graham crackers in a separate bowl and sprinkle into each date
  4. Pinch the dates together (they don’t have to be glued shut!)
  5. Add Melting Wafers (or traditional chocolate chips) to a microwave safe small bowl with ~1 tsp of coconut oil to help with smooth texture
  6. Microwave chocolate and coconut oil together in 30 second intervals mixing between to avoiding burning, until reached desired smoothness
