Open Pit Bacon Chestnut Appetizers

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by faith58

I make these and I changed the recipe a bit from the regular Bacon Chestnut Appetizers.. People will love these. Approximate number served depending on how many waterchestnuts you use. Enjoy! You can use the 12-oz bottle and mix with the brown sugar too. It depends on how many cans of water chestnuts I use! :)

I made these for a neighborhood gathering. Very yummy and they disappeared quickly! A little "fussy" to make but well worth the effort. Made for 1st Annual Holiday Tag Game. Thank you faith for posting.
