Fill the date with 1/3 teaspoon of peanut butter.

Notes for melting chocolate
Make sure you melt the chocolate using the double boiling method. To do this, fill a saucepan with 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water and bring it to a simmer. Then add the dark chocolate to a mixing bowl. Place this mixing bowl on the saucepan. Gently stir the chocolate until it's melted.

Another option for the topping instead of coconut chips is rose petals and sea salt.
