"A family favorite my uncle makes. They are a wonderful balance between salty and sweet, with a combination of crispy, chewy, and crunchy textures. My family destroys a tray of these in fifteen minutes. "

reduced-sodium soy sauce
dark brown sugar
dates, pitted and left whole
whole smoked almonds
bacon slices, cut in half crosswise
These are awesome!! I had these back in the 80's when I was stationed in Bermuda. Feel free to substitute walnuts for the almonds, apricots for the dates, I've even used smoked oysters and sliced water chestnuts wrapped with the bacon ... limitless combinations.
eh, so-so...not fantastic...
I made these today with smokehouse almonds, figs, low sodium bacon, and brown sugar (I forgot to buy soy sauce and ginger). I also sprinkled them with red pepper flakes after they were in the cake pan, because I wanted them to have some kick (they are devils, after all). They take a little while to put together, but they cook up quickly, and they're REALLY good. My buddy who was over to watch football loved them, as did my girlfriend's buddy who was over to get her hair done. If you want something tasty and impressive, and you don't mind taking a little time to make them, these are awesome. I think I'm gonna make a super spicy batch for Halloween. :)
This was a hit! We demolished them in about 2 seconds. Everybody wanted more. Only thing I would suggest don't do to much brown sugar. This was a easy quick recipe.
Made these for Thanksgiving appetizers, everyone loved them, couldn't get enough. Impressive yet easy to make. I wonder if you could assemble them the night before and cook the next day just before serving, they are better when warm. Thank you>
What a hit! I served these at my annual Halloween bash and they were enjoyed by everyone! My husband was a sceptic at first but had said he enjoyed them too. I'm glad I doubled the recipe! I had four requests for this recipe. Thank you for the great recipe swedishmilk!
Could use some blue cheese, but otherwise a good recipe
These were simple to make and fantastic!! Everyone loved them. Thanks
