YUMMY!!! To cut down on the mess, I wrap the chestnuts and THEN pour the sauce over them (careful not to get too much of the sauce on the toothpicks...makes for guests' sticky hands!) Also, I don't cook the sauce prior and it's fine in texture and taste. I do cook the wrapped chestnuts for about 1/2 hour before putting the sauce on them though. I've taken these to several get togethers and they've always been a hit!


delicious, great cold too! don't eat too many! the best way to get the most out of this recipe is to cut the bacon once lengthwise and once widthwise so you get 4 pieces out of each strip of bacon, instead of 3 strips like the recipe says. then, cut each water chestnut in half, so you get 2 half-moons. i only used one can instead of 2. delicious!


This recipe was a HUGE hit at a recent party. They were gone in a matter of minutes. I was in a pinch for time so I cut some corners. I microwaved the sauce, cooked the bacon and water chestnuts in the oven for 30 min., then added the sauce and microwaved for another 3-5. It was easy and YUMMY!
