  1. Oh man! My first thought when I read this title was, "dates?! ew, no." Now I can’t wait to try them. I think I always associate dates with prunes…haha! I think this will be the perfect little fancy treat to serve at my Noonday trunk show coming up though, thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Prunes have their place for sure…but never as a dessert 😉

      I can imagine these would be really cute at a trunk show. Enjoy them!
