    Then melt the stick of butter and then 1 cup of brown sugar and stir until mixed well. Pour the butter and brown sugar mixture on the smokies and bacon. Then take the other cup of brown sugar and sprinkle evenly over the smokies.

    Notes: I like to put them under a low broiler for 5 minutes. I have also left off the second cup of brown sugar and just drizzled a bit of honey over it. Another great and tasty way to do them is to mix the brown sugar with a bit of maple syrup and drizzle over them. If you are using them as appetizers, then secure the bacon with a toothpick and they are ready to serve.
