I love bacon-wrapped recipes, and these sweet-smoky snacks are easy to make and fun to eat, so be prepared with an extra batch. For a change, sprinkle them with a bit of blue cheese or toasted almonds. —Tammie Floyd, Plano, Texas

  • 8 maple-flavored bacon strips
  • 1 package (6 ounces) dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup honey barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard


  1. Cut bacon strips widthwise into thirds. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. Wrap a bacon piece around each apricot; secure with a toothpick. Place in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  3. Bake at 350° until bacon is crisp, 18-22 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, honey and mustard. Serve with warm apricot bites.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • For easy cleanup, spritz your measuring spoons with a little cooking spray before measuring sticky ingredients like honey.
  • Maple-flavored bacon strips give this dish additional flavor, but feel free to substitute plain bacon if you can't find it.
