almond stuffed, bacon wrapped dates.
I love a can't-keep-my-hands-out-of-the-bowl snack. Some weak in the knees snacks are obvious: your favorite chips or nuts, cotton candy if you are my mom, chocolate covered peanuts if you are my dad. My sons love baked cheesy crackers and we all line up for truffle popcorn. What is your 'addictive' snack? Please share!
And lest you be short on must-have bites, I bring you yet another (you can thank me later, when your mouth isn't full):
bacon-wrapped, almond-stuffed datesyou had me at bacon.
wooden toothpicks 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/2 tsp ground ginger 3/4 cup dark brown sugar 2o dates, pitted 20 marcona almonds or smoked almonds 10 bacon slices, cut in half
Oven to 400. Put brown sugar on a plate. Mix soy and ginger in another bowl. Stuff dates with an almond, wrap in bacon and secure with a toothpick. Dip the dates in soy/ginger, put them on the plate and sprinkle them with sugar. Roll them around a bit, then place them on a parchment/foil lined baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, let cool slightly and serve.
