Chop the pistachios finely in a food processor. Cut the Marzipan into small cubes and knead well with the pistachios and Maraschino liqueur. Halve the mixture, reserving one half for decoration.

Fill the dates with the other half of the Marzipan mixture.

Coarsely chop the dark chocolate and melt in a bowl over a hot water bath. Coat the dates with the chocolate (using a wooden skewer) and place on a cooling rack. Garnish half of them with 1 half piece of pistachio and then chill in the refrigerator.
