Crispy, smoky bacon caramelized with brown sugar and wrapped around hot, sweet, and tender cheese-stuffed dates creates an easy and unique appetizer. Serve with balsamic reduction for a tangy addition!
*If using mozzarella, choose one that has a good flavor, because some mozzarellas are very mild. A smoked mozzarella would probably work really well here!
**At this point, the dates can be covered and refrigerated for a few hours (up to one day) before baking if desired.
