This intensely satisfying treat, infused with traditional Middle Eastern flavors, relies on dates for its sweetness — remember to use pit-in dates; they contain more moisture than their pitted counterparts.
Ooey-gooey yet surprisingly low in fat and calories, these rich stacks are a heavenly, healthy take on the overly sugary originals. If you can't find raw cacao nibs, feel free to substitute shaved dark chocolate.
Russet potatoes have a dry, starchy flesh that becomes wonderfully fluffy when baked, making them the ideal candidate for these richly spiced twice-baked potatoes. Serrano chiles can be quite hot, so reduce the amount used (or substitute with milder jalapeño) if you prefer this dish to be milder.
There's no need for serving plates or forks with this gooey chocolate and peanut butter dessert - simply serve these bites on a large platter and let guests dig in. The best part? You can make these in advance and store in the freezer until the day of your party.
