Caramelized Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Bacon wrapped Crack Cocaine is what these were termed when I made them.  They are sweet and salty and so addicting.

Tasty Kitchen

1 pound Bacon, Cut Into Thirds
1 pound Smokies
1 stick Butter
2 cups Brown Sugar

Note: These are a little bit soupy, I did what another reviewer said and cooked them longer to see if it would caramelize but it never did.  I made these a second time like other recipes suggest with only the brown sugar sprinkled on top and they weren't as good.  So next time I will probably cut the butter and brown sugar mixture in half and possibly drain after first cooking then bake again for 10 minutes to crisp and caramelize better.

Preheat oven to 375F. Cut the bacon into thirds and wrap each smokie, securing with a toothpick. Place all the wrapped smokies in a single layer in a baking dish. 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. Bake them for about 15-20 minutes and then turn the heat up to 400F for about 5 minutes or longer until the bacon becomes crispy.
