I make these all the time and they are fabulous! a few suggestions...i use the long pretzel sticks (that look like cigars) and cut the bacon lengthwise (in half) or leave it whole and wrap it like a candy cane. I would also cook on a baking sheet rather than a rack...the sugar sort of caramelizes everything and they are them carefully, as they burn quickly...they may require a little trial and error, but well worth it!
