Description

Whether you like them sweet or spicy, these little snacks are addicting! Take these to a picnic or party and people will be begging you for the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Sliced Bacon, Uncooked
  • 2 cans (8 Oz. Size) Whole Water Chestnuts (Not The Sliced Ones)
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar, Divided
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • ¼ cups Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • 6  6" Wooden Skewers

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 300 F

Start by cutting the bacon strips in half. Wrap ½ a strip of bacon around a whole water chestnut. Slide it onto a skewer to secure the bacon around the water chestnut. Repeat with a second water chestnut on the same skewer. Keep going until you run out of bacon or water chestnuts, securing two wrapped water chestnuts to each skewer.

Place skewers in a shallow 9×13 baking dish and bake at 300 F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until bacon is crispy. Remove skewers from baking dish and drain bacon fat. Place half the skewers back in the same pan, and half the skewers in another baking dish (I used an 8×8).

In a small bowl, mix ½ cup dark brown sugar and ½ cup ketchup. Spoon this over one pan of skewers, turning to coat on all sides. This will be your sweet batch.

In another small bowl, mix ½ cup dark brown sugar and ¼ cup Sriracha. Spoon this over the second pan of skewers, turning to coat on all sides. This will be your spicy batch.

Place both pans back in the oven for 1 additional hour. Serve warm.

Hi Rosanne! I’m just now realizing people have left comments for me to respond to. I’m so sorry! Yes, they really do take that long but they are so worth it. And plus, they make your house smell yummy. :-) If you do give them a try I’d love to hear how they turn out!

Hi Ann,
Why does this take 2 hours to cook? Is that a typo or is that really the cook time?
Thanks : )
