      makes two dozen
      24 large dried dates, such as Medjool, pitted
      12 jarred roasted chestnuts, halved
      1/3 cup ricotta cheese
      12 slices bacon, halved crosswise

      1. Preheat the oven to 500° and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Stuff each date with a chestnut half and place on the baking sheet.
      2.

      Snip off the corner of a plastic sandwich bag, creating a 1/4-inch opening; fill with the ricotta cheese. Pipe it into each date until just full.
      3. Lay the bacon slices on a work surface.

      Place a prepared date on each slice, roll up the bacon to wrap the date and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the wrapped dates, stuffed sides up, on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake until the bacon is golden and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes.

      Transfer to paper towels to drain; let cool slightly before serving.
