Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love to dance. Full-on dad style. If you know anything else about me, it’s that I have a huge sweet tooth. One of my favorite ways to indulge my cravings for sweets is with my almond butter bacon-wrapped dates. I make it with fresh pitted dates, crispy bacon, and JUSTIN’S® Maple Almond Butter. It’s so good it makes me feel like I could dance!
