Date Night...Bacon Wrapped Dates that is...

Another BACON recipe...But SOooo worth it!
Bacon Wrapped Dates w/ Kahlua Sauce
   Scallop Chowder in Sourdough Bread Bowls & Salad 
 YUMMY for the TUMMY!
Recently I was invited to a neighbor's for girl's night!
Good Food, Good Wine, & Good Gab!
Those invited were asked to bring one dish....
I chose an appetizer...I had been craving these yummy tidbits for a while.
Besides, I wanted to share them on the Blog for the holidays...
You will LOVE these...even if you don't like dates!
I promise :)

Almost done...SOooo Good!

Bacon Wrapped Dates
1 package of pitted dates
1 package of bacon, cut in half
1/4 cup Ricotta Cheese
2 tablespoons of splenda brown sugar, reserve 1 tablespoon..set aside
 **(If you use real brown sugar, cut measurements in half)
1/8 cup of chopped pecans
Cooking Spray
Use reserved brown sugar to sprinkle on top of the wrapped dates.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes, keep an eye on the bacon
Then pour the sauce over the top of the dates and broil until crisp.
Let set for five minutes and serve...
2 ounces of Kahlua
2 ounces of whipping cream
1 tablespoon splenda brown sugar
Mix well in a container that pours.

Mix together the ricotta cheese, pecans and brown sugar. Place inside the pitted dates.
Wrap 1/2 piece of bacon around the filled date. Secure with a toothpick.
 Place in the oven to bake...
 When almost done, add the sauce and broil till crisp...
This is what makes this appetizer "over the top delicious"!
(I use splenda brown sugar because the dates are so sweet)
