  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x10-inch baking pan.
  2. Cook and stir dates, chocolate, water, white sugar, and 1/4 cup butter in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat until melted and thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
