My cousinTHE CURIOUS EPICURIAN hosted a open house last weekend to celebrate the completion of her new kitchen...among other things.
One of the hors d'oeuvres she served was "Bagna Cauda" which means warm bath in Italian,It was the hit of the party! I am posting a link to her recipe.

Yes I have had the walnut stuffed dates (as a holiday treat) since childhood, the candied cherry does sound good! Thanks for visiting.
