Espresso Mascarpone-Stuffed Dates

It all started with a craving for coffee combined with popular demand for a date recipe from both my husband and readers. I closed my eyes and imagined a coffee-flavored dessert and the first thing that came to my mind was tiramisu.

So I decided to create a “tiramisu date” with mascarpone, espresso, and chocolate. It came out exactly like I thought: a “cakeless” version of tiramisu, bursting with coffee aroma amid sweet, delicate cream. You have to try this one, you’ll love it!!

Espresso Mascarpone-Stuffed Dates Recipe

Serves: Makes 12 stuffed dates


  • 12 Medjool dates pitted
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup
  • 3 teaspoons espresso or strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons shaved chocolate (optional)


Delicately clean the dates with a damp paper towel. In a medium bowl, combine the mascarpone, agave syrup, and espresso.

Stuff each date with about a tablespoon of the coffee-flavored mascarpone. Top with shaved chocolate for a wonderful taste and look.
