These are arguably the best appetizers you will ever taste. They taste extremly good and will disappear immediatley. Even my friend who was reluctant to try them gobbled them up in the end!

Now you are supposed to cut all the chestnuts in half, after doing so, I realized that I didn't have enough bacon for this and ended up doubling up the amount of chestnuts in each one, so leave them whole if you want.

Step 4: Preparation step 3

Wrap each chestnut in a piece of bacon and stick a toothpick through it to secure it.

Step 5: Preparation step 4

Repeat preparation step 3 until all of the bacon and chestnuts are used up, putting them in the pan as you go along-oh and make sure you grease it.

Step 6: Preparation step 5

Pour the sauce over the appetizers and bake in the oven for 30 minutes to an hour at 350 degrees (farenheit). Once they are finished, gobble them up before anyone else can!

Thanks for an awesome idea, I tried this with a modified sauce and garlic gloves as the filling, came out awesome.

I bet this would work well with other things rolled up in the Bacon. I would imagine that shrimp, mushrooms, crab , lobster or any number of other things would work great.

would like to see a picture of the finished product!
its a good recipe and i'll give you credit for that, but i think its a little too messy for a living room filled with people watching the Super Bowl, though.
Good Work anyways!

Most of the liquid actually boils out during cooking so they are surprisingly not as messy as you would imagine them to be.
