Don't let the sinister name throw you -- these bacon-wrapped dates couldn't be more delicious. Martha takes them to the next level by stuffing the dried fruit with pungent Stilton.

- 24 large dates, pitted
- 12 slices bacon, halved crosswise
- 1/3 cup crumbled Stilton cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place 24 toothpicks in a small bowl filled with water; let soak 15 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and fit with a wire rack; set aside.
Halve dates lengthwise being careful not to cut all the way through. Place a small amount of cheese in the center of each date. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date. Secure bacon with a toothpick.
Place dates on prepared baking sheet. Bake until bacon is cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
