Bacon Wrapped Dates

My sister made these little treats at Christmas and I fell in love! I love dates and I adore bacon, so how could these not be the perfect marriage of the two??? I made them today for our Super Bowl get together and they made the Green Bay victory even sweeter! It doesn’t hurt that they are super easy either…

First cut up your bacon into pieces just long enough to wrap around the dates with just a bit of overlap. Use thin sliced bacon.

Then break some toothpicks in half to secure the bacon. You don’t need a whole toothpick, but if you’re choosy about appearances you can use whole ones.

All you do is wrap each pitted date with a slice of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.

Then place them on a baking sheet covered in parchment or foil.

Bake at 375 until bacon is crispy but not burnt.

Remove from pan and let drain on paper towels before serving.

Let them sit about 5 minutes to cool a bit before you serve them.
