Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto

0 0 0 No comments

Medjool dates are naturally sweet and packed full of vitamins and minerals. They’re a healthy snack on their own, but when combined with a sweet mascarpone filling and wrapped in prosciutto, they make a great appetizer. They have a sweet, almost sticky flesh, and their larger size makes them ideal for stuffing.

The filling is a mixture of mascarpone cheese, dark chocolate, pistachio nuts, and orange zest. It has a mildly sweet flavor that contrasts nicely with the salty flavor of the thinly sliced prosciutto. It’s this sweet and salty combination that makes this appetizer so good.
