"Found in a grandparentsdotom newsletter I get monthly, this recipe was described as "A little bite of cheese, a little bite of sweetness, a little bite of crispy & a whole lot of delicious". Just when you think dips have used up all their originality, along comes a recipe like this to convince you otherwise. Enjoy!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Using an electric mixer (blender or hand-held blender), combine both cheeses w/salt & pepper.

Step 2

When blended, add cream until dip reaches desired consistency.

Step 3

Fold in dates & bacon. Serve w/dippers and/or crackers of choice.

NOTE Although the recipe did not suggest this, I feel a chill time to allow the flavors to develop would be best & I think it would also be best if allowed to approach room temp b4 being served. My thoughts, but your choices

Wow, wow, wow. I loved this recipe twisted. It was so good. Quick and really easy to make with excellent results. What a lovely burst of flavor, sweet, tangy, savory and delicious. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. I served this with Mikekey's Homemade Salted Naan Crisps for a wonderful treat. Made FYC Tag Game.
