Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto

Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto make a deliciously sweet and salty appetizer. And like potato chips, they’re 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?

Together with a little orange zest and creamy mascarpone, this filling is stuffed into rich-tasting, Medjool dates and wrapped in prosciutto. It’s a great party dish, and best of all, it can be made in advance.
