Sweet, salty, simple, and delicious, these chocolate dates wtih pumpkin seeds are the perfect ending to your meal!
Make sure you remove the pits from your dates. You can buy them pre-pitted, but that's not usually the case.
Place the pumpkin seeds in a small bowl and set aside. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, and heat for one minute. Stir, and if needed, microwave in 10 second intervals until melted and smooth.
Dip the pitted Medjool dates into the melted chocolate, coating all sides, then roll in the pumpkin seeds. Place on the cookie sheet.
Repeat with remaining dates. Sprinkle sea salt flakes on top of all the dates.
Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm, about 45 minutes.
Serving size is one chocolate covered date.
Store dates in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They should stay fresh for about 4 days.
