Bacon-Wrapped Weenies

Because it was a party weekend, I had to whip up a couple tasty recipes to share with friends.
You already know about my Chocolate Cherry Bars, but I also made another crowd pleaser.
These Bacon-Wrapped Weenies were gone before all the food was set out and before all the guests had arrived, but that can only mean one thing.
I should have made more.

These little guys take just minutes to prepare and about a half hour to bake.
My favorite part is that it takes 4 ingredients to make an out of this world appetizer.

What you'll need:
1 package weenies (I think they're 13 oz)
1 lb regular sliced bacon
1+ cups brown sugar
1 stick of butter

Preheat the oven to 375.
Cut the bacon into thirds.
Wrap one piece of bacon around each weenie and stick a toothpick in to hold it in place. You will have a few extra bacon pieces, you can save those for breakfast or give a couple weenies some extra bacon.

Combine 1 cup of brown sugar and the butter in a small sauce pan.
Cook over medium-high heat and stir until you've created a beautiful carmel glaze.

Immediately spoon the sauce over the weenies, saturating each little guy.
Now (somewhat heavily) sprinkle extra brown sugar on top of the weenies, making sure to cover each one.

Pop them in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn the oven up to 400 for 10-15 minutes (or longer, depending on if the bacon looks crispy).
Keep an eye on them because they can go from crisp to black quickly.

When they look like this, they're done!
Set these out in a group of friends and watch them disappear.

On a side note, I'd like to ask a favor of you. If you like my blog posts, please leave a comment and tell your friends about me. If you see something "Pin" worthy, give me a shout out on Pinterest!
