My husband LOVES Bacon. They say a way to a man's heart, is through his stomach; this is a tribute to my beloved!
2 dates, pits removed
1 tsp. MeeNut Butter
1 slice bacon, cut in half
Slice open dates. Fill each with 1/2 tsp. MeeNut Butter. Wrap each with 1/2 slice of bacon. Bake in oven at 400 for 20-30 minutes. Remove cooked bacon date from dish and drain on paper towels until cool enough to handle.
Cut a corner piece off of each date (diagonally on the bottom third of the date) Press two bacon dates together at the cut off point - forming a heart! Thread a wooden skewer through the heart to hold the two sides together. Cut off any excess skewer. Decorate the ends of the skewer with cucumber pieces shaped like the ends of an arrow.
This is a little more involved for the kiddos - but they can definitely help with assembly.
Let me tell you, these yummy "candies" will not last long.
Spoil your Paleo Bacon Lovers with a special treat this week!
