  • 24 small chunks of cream cheese cut into about 1” long x 1/4” thick
  • 24 pitted dates (preferably Medjool)
  • 24 salted and roasted whole almonds
  • 8 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
  • 24 wooden 6-inch skewers


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Stuff 1 chunk of cheese and 1 almond into each date, then wrap one piece of bacon around each date and secure bacon with a toothpick if desired. Arrange dates, bacon seam down and 1 inch apart, on parchment or foil in a shallow baking pan.
Bake 5 minutes, then turn dates over with tongs and bake until bacon is crisp, 5 to 6 minutes more. Drain on a paper towel or parchment. Serve immediately.
