Bacon Wrapped Dates

Everyone loves sweets and most of them are hardcore carnivores too. So when both meat and sweets pair together, expect a culinary magic! Bacon-wrapped dates have materialized this awesome combo and pose as delicious meat candies ready for your indulgence. So pop in few of them when you feel hungry and enjoy this wonderful ensemble of sweet and savory flavors to your heart’s content.

The presence of bacon in this snack might make a health-freak frown. But the nitrate-free or minimally processed varieties will make sure that this treat remains healthy yet tasty at the same time. While wrapping up the dates, opt for the whole, pitted ones since wrapping up the chopped ones might be very difficult to handle. Once wrapped up, you will only need a mere 10 minutes’ wait until the bacon-wrapped little gems are ready to pleasure your palate with its unique flavors.

Happy snacking!
