- 2 dozen medjool dates
- 2/3 cup marzipan
- 1 or 2 drops green food coloring
Select 2 dozen of the fattest, firmest medjool dates you can find. Slit them down one side and remove the pit. Mix the marzipan with the food coloring in a small bowl; the color should be a dark, not pastel, green. Stuff each date with marzipan, allowing some to show through the slit. Arrange the dates on a platter and serve.
