These made a great New Year's Eve treat. Cutting the water chestnuts in half made them perfectly bitesize. When making them, my only caveat is be careful when they are getting close to being finished baking with the sauce on top. I took the pan out of the oven, and the sauce continued to bake (like caramel). By the time I got them out of the pan all of the sauce had burned. Keep in mind, the sauce will continue cooking, so take the pan out sooner than you would think. I will definitely make these again!

This is a great appetizer. But we found the sauce too sweet. Next time I'll cook the bacon and water chestnuts, and then serve with the sauce in a bowl to dip them. Thanks Lynn :) Made for PRMR tag game

Made this recipe for a small New Years day gathering & these appetizers were probably the biggest hit I had on my finger food counter ~ ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Definitely a keeper recipe that I'll be making time & time again! Thanks for sharing it! {Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #36]

Oh wow! These little gems are so good: crunchy, savory AND sweet! AND making it so easy, too. <br/><br/>I made these for a ladies' out evening in my home, and they were a big hit--even with those of us who recently had a weigh-in for our "Biggest Loser" weight-loss contest! <br/><br/>So. Here's what I did: I used two cans of whole water chestnuts--and had about five leftover at the end. I used 1-lb of bacon CUT IN QUARTERS, and this made just the perfect bite-size morsel.<br/><br/>Next time I make this (and I will make this again), I plan to cut the sauce by half....much of it died on the bottom of the pan, in excess. AND I bet this sauce would be very persuasive if it had a squirt or two of yellow mustard--zippety-do-dah! <br/><br/>Sorry, Lavendar Lynn....forgot to take a pict when I plated, and by the time I remembered the plate wasn't very pretty looking anymore! :-)
