Bacon Wrapped dates are the perfect party snack or appetizer. You can serve them at a fancy event, a Super Bowl party, or even as an after school snack.
Affectionately known as “devils on horseback” to some, you can really make these your own. Open the dates and add an almond for crunch, or a soft cheese for just a little bit extra. In the UK, they are traditionally stuffed with chutney. I prefer them just how this recipe is written. Simple perfection.
