Sweet & Salty Pigs in a Blanket

Today I was perusing an article about the latest Candy Expo in Chicago where apparently bacon was featured more then ever before. No big surprise there really. However, they mentioned that the Sugardale Foods Booth were serving bacon-wrapped donut holes and I can't figure out why I haven't thought of this perfect-sized finger food before. Sure, we've all see the bacon-topped donuts by now but not wrapped holes. Perfect for hors d'oeuvres!

So I went to the Sugardale Foods site since I hadn't heard of them before and that's where I found this recipe (modified by me slightly). So simple yet so yummy sounding.

2 pkgs. Hotdogs
2 pkgs. Bacon (they suggest ready-made but I say Nay to that so I would suggest cooking until they are almost done but still pliable)
2 cups Pancake syrup

1.Cut each hotdog into 4 bite-size pieces.
2.Cut each slice of bacon in half.
3.Wrap a piece of bacon around each bite-size weiner piece and secure with a toothpick.
4.Place all of the wrapped piece in a slow cooker and cover with the syrup.
5.Heat until warm (about an hour).
6.Stir occasionally and serve warm.

You know I don't post recipes much because I am not the best cook but this looks easy and sounds great for a holiday weekend get-together. I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!
