Step 1: Ingredients
-one bag of chopped dates
-one container of ricotta cheese (I think it was 15 oz)
-bacon (I ended up making almost 3 dozen of these things and you need one piece of bacon for each one)
Step 2: Make Bacon Cups
I used thick cut bacon so the baking time was much longer than the instructable that I followed recommended, but that gave me plenty of time to make the filling while the bacon cups were in the oven! I found that cutting a piece of bacon in half, using one half to go across the middle of the cupcake tin and then cutting the other half in half and using those pieces for the sides worked really well.
When the bacon cups were crispy enough, I took them out of the oven and used tongs to put them upside down on some paper towels to let the fat drain off them.
