A can't miss appetizer. Got this from a friend a few years back. Thanks Connie!

Great appetizer! Instead of using a whole piece of bacon per chestnut, I usually cut each strip into thirds. Put them under the broiler until bacon is done (about 7 minutes) before adding the sauce. When I am in a hurry I simply used the precooked bacon slices. Taste just as great!!
