I stumbled across this recipe, while looking for appetizers to make for a christmas party. This recipe was fairly simple to make, it really does not have that many steps. It was also, soo good that I always recommend it for something to bring to a party. It will easily be a highlight to anything you attend.

Ingredients you need to cook this shit:
1 lb pitted dates
1 (4 ounce) package whole almonds, blanched
1 1⁄2 lbs smoked bacon, thin sliced
Directions you need to cook this shit:
- Stuff each date with one almond.
- Cut bacon into half or thirds. Wrap bacon around date and secure with a round toothpick.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place dates on a foil lined (they are messy and this makes them much easier to clean up) baking pan and cook until bacon is crispy (around 15 minutes).
- Drain on paper towel and serve warm or room temperature.
