Chocolate Bacon-Wrapped Dates

When I heard these were on the menu for dessert at a friend's dinner party, I shuddered at the thought. Bacon? Chocolate? Dates? What is going on? Bacon is for breakfast, chocolate is for dessert, and dates are for your great grandpa. Well, I had it all wrong. After stepping outside my comfort zone, I popped one of the hot gooey blobs in my mouth and a new world of dessert flavors and texture combinations was introduced to me. The salty and sweet mixture combined with the unexpected crunchy and chewy consistency, taking my sweet tooth for a ride, and now this is my go-to impress-my-guests dish. And it's much easier than baking a cake! There really are few ways to make a brown fruit wrapped in brown meat oozing brown sauce look pretty, so I suggest sacrificing beauty for scrumptiousness and serving it hot, right out of the oven!
