Everytime I bring these to a gathering I also bring along several copies of this recipe because I am always asked for it.

These little bites would make a wonderful addition to your next party.  Bacon is good with anything (right?!), so add that to the crunchiness of the chestnuts and you've got one delicious appetizer!
