Meat Candy

Even from the name it sounds completely disgusting but I promise this was one of the most glorious things I ever tasted! Meat Candy!

This little bit of heaven on a toothpick came from my best friend's aunt (who loves to make odd but yummy things like fried biscuits). It also won best recipe at the West Virginia State Fair (this may be the thing that makes you not want to create it but do it anyway!).

Here goes:

1 pound of bacon

1 package of little smokies sausages

1 cup of brown sugar

Cut strips of bacon in thirds. Rap bacon around smokie and secure with toothpick.

Dump brown sugar in a zip-top bag. Place few meat skewers in bag and toss to coat.

Important: place brown sugared meat on foil-lined (best to use that non-stick foil in a double layer) pan.

Bake at (well, here's where it gets tricky...I don't know the back at temp or time so I looked it up on All Recipes and got 350-400 degrees for 20-40 minutes). Basically, you bake these treats until the bacon gets crispy and the sugar gets bubbly.

This will be the best thing you ever eat! But be warned...once you start you can't stop. I ate too much meat candy last week but that's not stopping me from making it for my staff Christmas party.
