For the sauce, combine the Holland House® Marsala Cooking Wine, shallot, garlic, and thyme in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce liquid to about 2 Tbsp. Add the mushroom stock, cremini mushrooms, veal demi-glace, and brown sugar. Stir to combine and reduce to ½ cup. Strain and reserve.
Preheat oven to 375°F. For the dates, combine the Italian sausage and Cipollini onions, mix well. Stuff each date with about ½ oz. filling. Bake on a parchment-lined sheet tray for 10-15 minutes, or until sausage is fully cooked.
Drizzle each date with sauce and serve immediately.
