  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut each strip of bacon in half. Wrap one strip around one water chestnut. Secure with a wooden toothpick. Place in shallow baking dish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes.
  4. While the wraps are baking, in a small mixing bowl combine brown sugar, mayonnaise, and chili sauce to make barbecue sauce. After the wraps have finished baking, transfer them (removing them from the grease) to a second shallow baking dish. Pour the sauce over the wraps.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 15 additional minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Serve hot out of dish with toothpicks.

I just tried this in a cooking class and our instructor suggested using Miracle Whip to give it that tangy flavor. Yummy!!

These are fabulous! If I have a party and don't serve these I am in TROUBLE! The sauce makes enough to double the recipe. I use a thin bacon and cut it into thirds, then wrap each chestnut i...

This is a great appetizer. Instead of chili sauce, I used a bit of tobasco...really added that extra kick! I have used this over and over again...always the first to go!

I make this appetizer around the holidays and they are usually gone instantly!!!! Even my picky brother will eat them!!! I usually broil them towards the end so the bacon can crisp up a bit!!!! ...
