Step 5

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, ketchup, salad dressing and chili sauce.

Step 6

Pour sauce over water chestnuts while trying to not get the sauce on the toothpicks.

Step 7

I try to find the leanest bacon I can. If your bacon is too fatty there will be a lot of grease separation in the span. You should skim this off especially if serving cold.
