These are awesome. I found the secret of making them super crispy, after reading all the reviews. I put the bacon wrapped waterchestnuts on a wire rack over a 9X 12 baking pan, and baked them until they were crispy...then I put the sauce over...yum. Incredible appetizer.

I've made these twice now over the holidays and they were a hit both times. I did follow the recipe exactly and it's a very quick and easy appetizer to put together. I few things to mention though...you do have to cook them longer than the recipe states (about 45 minutes for us) and it's important that you use a really big (preferrably shallow) baking dish to allow the sauce to spread out. If your dish is too small, the chestnuts will just boil in the sauce resulting in limp bacon.

I found that you can cut the bacon in thirds instead of half. Cutting the sauce recipe in half works too. I marinated the water chestnuts for a 1/2 before wrapping them in the bacon. It gave them more flavor. Then i used the marinade to baste them before cooking. Draining the fat off during cooking time helped alot too.
