I stole this idea from an appetizer at a work function. It's easy and looks fancy without too much effort. Pomegranate molasses can be found at any Middle Eastern market/grocery store. If you can't find it, use balsamic vinegar that has been reduced until it's a syrup consistency. —HalfPint
bacon slices, uncooked
whole dates, pitted
pomegranate molasses or reduced balsamic vinegar
plain wooden toothpicks
