Goat Cheese Dates With Prosciutto

You can't go wrong with sweet dates and salty prosciutto - add some mascarpone and goat cheese, and you've got a definite crowd pleaser.

The goat cheese gives it a bit of a tart tangy flavor, while the mascarpone gives it that luscious, creamy texture. The basil infuses some great, fresh flavor - and if you make these ahead of time, the basil flavor will permeate through the cheese mixture even more.

The great thing about this appetizer is that it's completely no-cook, and you can make them in advance. Just cover them in the fridge for a day or two before serving - it doesn't get easier than that!
