  1. Add 30g pistachios and the walnuts to a frying pan set over a medium heat and fry for 3-4 mins, tossing frequently, until lightly golden and fragrant. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and cranberries to the pan; stir until melted and evenly coated.
  2. Cut a slice down the length of each date and remove the stone. Fill with the chocolate mixture, sprinkle with the remaining 10g pistachios, place on a plate and chill in the fridge for 15-20 mins until the chocolate has just set. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
