I was a bit disapointed. It was challenging to assemble - the chestnuts didn't hold together to well. And, it was a bit too salty for my taste.

These are great! I had a recipe like this and lost it, but I'll be sure to keep this one around.

Didn't try it, because I was looking for actual chestnut recipe, and this seems to be WATER chestnuts. I rated 4 because that is currently the average rating and I didn't want to impact scoring....

Liked these, but they really MUST be eaten right away or the chestnuts get too mealy.

Kids and hubby loved this little appy Carol. Thanks so much!

This is amazing with a little tweaking. Use low sodium soy sauce and par cook the bacon before you wrap. This is a go to recipe for a last minute party fare.
