These are great. I have been making them forever. The only thing I do different is make half with water chestnuts and half with pineapple chunks. With the pineapple you get that delicious "sweet and salty" thing.

I thought these were great. Everyone ate them up super fast and I had to make more. I love the soy flavor and didn't think it was too strong. I even made more of the glaze and poured it over the top. Thanks Karen!

These were good. I heard about this idea on tv and decided to look here. I didn't like the strong soy flavor, so I added 2 tbs of honey to the sauce. I think this would be good with some peppered bacon too. I am sorry the picture is so small, it is from my phone. Thanks :)

These were pretty good! We only used 2 cans of water chestnuts, but made the rest as stated. I surprisingly didn't care for the strong soy sauce flavor, I guess I was just looking for more sweet and I thought it would be that way with brown sugar. Oh well, everyone else really liked them! Thanks for posting!

I made these for an appetizer night with friends. They were a big hit. I only need 2 cans of water chestnuts, not 4 and used te whole pound of bacon, cutting the pieces in thirds. Maybe the cans were bigger than the ones you use. Oh well, they were still good. I just realized while typing this review that I didn't end up making the dipping sauce. Oh well, next time I will make the sauce when I make them.

I was doing a search for this recipe. My mom and I used to make it for appetizers around the holidays but I didn't have the recipe written down. This recipe differs a bit from my mom's in that we didn't broil, but set the oven to a temperature (can't remember exact, but another similar recipe has the oven temp on it) and we marinated the chestnuts in the soy sauce and brown sugar mixture for a few hrs or overnight before wrapping them up. Thanks for posting this recipe so I could find it. :)
