The almonds are finely chopped with a knife. If you like your candy chunky, chop it into larger pieces.
Remember not to chop all your almonds because we will be replacing seeds from dates with almonds as well.
Make a small slit on the side of the dates with the sharp pointed end of the knife. Now with the help of a toothpick, spread out your dates. Once all the seeds have been removed, place an almond in each date.
