Bacon Wrapped Dates with Almonds

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.

Prep Time: 20 minutes    Total Time: 45 minutes    Serves:  25

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:

  1. Stuff each date with one almond.
  2. Cut bacon into half or thirds. Wrap bacon around date and secure with a round toothpick.
  3. 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).
  4. Drain on paper towel and serve warm or room temperature.
