Bacon Wrapped Chestnuts

Raven Higheagle


A few years ago my friend made these for a party that we had. They were such am awesome appetizer and they were gone in about 5 minutes. I asked her to bring them to every get together that we had, even a party that they had for me before I moved! I have been craving these things ever since. The combinations of flavor is so amazing and the sauce is so savory. I was so glad that she shared the recipe with me! You will love these too and they will be a hit at any get together!
That's why I decided to include them in my Super Bowl Party line up.
