Stuffed Cockroach Snacks for the Perfect Halloween Party
The right snacks make the party, and if you are having a spooky, creepy Halloween party, Stuffed Cockroach Snacks are a must! You will know they are perfectly normal, stuffed dates, but your guests will reach for one and give out a frightening scream! I love making Stuffed Cockroach Snacks not only for Halloween, but any time of year for a fantastic snack.
Preparing Dates for Stuffed Cockroach Snacks
Usually I purchase pitted dates for Stuffed Cockroach Snacks, but mistakenly picked up whole dates this time. Oops! The mistake was quickly fixed though, as dates are easy to pit with a sharp knife. Simply slide the knife along the skin and through the meat of the date lengthwise, then open the date slightly. The pit will be a long, oval seed in the middle of the date that you can easily remove.

Stuffed Cockroach Snacks for Other Times of the Year
Stuffed Cockroach Snacks aren’t just for Halloween. You can have these wonderful snacks at any holiday. I have stuffed them with just the nuts and rolled them in confectioner’s sugar for a sweet treat, as well as with a bit of hot pepper jelly for a sweet and spicy snack. If you like, you can freeze Stuffed Cockroach Snacks for later too! They will stay in a freezer for about a month and taste just as fresh as if you made them today.
1 lb pitted, whole dates
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 C finely chopped pecans
In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and pecans until fully incorporated.
Fill each pitted date with the mixture, pressing closed.
Arrange on a plate or platter with the open side down.
Refrigerate any leftovers.
Stuffed Cockroach Snacks are the perfect Halloween treat and Autumn snack!
