    These were a hit at our BBQ. I will definately make them again...but watch out, they are really rich!  -  19 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy and yummy! I did marinate the bacon in a soy sauce/ brown sugar base for 10 minutes before assembly. Received great reviews. Doesn't get much easier for something that tastes complex.  -  22 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Sooo easy and delicious! Great party appetizer. To cut down on grease, I place a cooling rack on my baking sheet and bake the chestnuts on that.  -  18 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
