Top Review by Epi-curious

This is a delicious and unusual addition to the overwhelming amount of recipes out there for stuffed dates. It's not like most in that it has a baked on coating and is drizzled with a creamy sugar mixture which tastes far superior to just rolling them in raw or powdered sugar. This is a must try if you are looking for something that no one else on your block has served before!
