I've made these almost every Christmas for as long as I can remember. They're ridiculously simple, but very tasty, and you don't even need a recipe - just some dates, some marzipan, and some chocolate.
If your dates have stones, take them out, and then open the dates along ther length. Cut small pieces of marzipan, roll into date-sized sausages, and insert one into each date.
When you've done as many dates as you fancy, melt some chocolate and half-dip each date in chocolate. Leave them to cool on greaseproof paper and voila, you have chocolate-dipped, marzipan-stuffed dates to feed to your friends (if you're feeling generous - I usually eat about half by the time I've finished making them...).
