Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

These are addictive! When I serve them there is never one left!
large pitted dates
bacon, good quality
almonds, whole roasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stuff an almond in the pit cavity of a date. Cut each slice of bacon in half or thirds and wrap a piece around the equator of the date. Secure with a toothpick. (The dates can be made up to this point, put in a zip style bag and kept in the refrigerator for a day)

Bake, in a single layer, on a large baking sheet for 15 minutes, or until bacon is done, but not too brown. Watch these! They go from done to burnt quickly. 
* These little treats are HOT! Let them sit a few minutes until serving.
