Stuffed Dates, Fig, and Olive Crostini Appetizers

Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto

0 0 0 No comments

This is a deliciously sweet and salty appetizer that’s easy to make and hard to stop eating once you start. I came up with this recipe after I was given a large bag of pistachio nuts, and for some reason, my mind immediately went to chocolate. And what doesn’t go good with chocolate, especially dark chocolate? It makes a great party dish, and best of all, it can be made in advance.
