Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking tray with foil and set aside. Using a sharp knife, slit the side of each date and remove the pit. Wrap each date in bacon and then stab completely through with a toothpick to hold the bacon in place. (If you don't use a toothpick, the bacon will shrink and slide off of the date as it cooks.) Place wrapped dates on the foil lined sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through and slightly crispy. While the dates are in the oven, pour some balsamic in the bottom of a small saucepan. Turn the heat to medium low and bring to a slow simmer. When the vinegar has reduced by about half, remove from the heat and drizzle over the finished dates. Enjoy!
