Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Bites

The unbelievable happened a few weeks ago, my Spartans made the Rose Bowl!  As soon as we beat OSU & locked ourselves in the big game, my friends all jumped at the chance to be in LA for NYE to attend the game on the 1st & I jumped at the chance to host a NYE party. I love parties & over time I've come to really enjoy playing the role of host.  I immediately hopped on Pinterest in hunt for some new recipes to try out. I got a few new dips (stay tuned), but I wanted to do something a bit more fun. Enter these tasty little bites.  What a fun treat!  These were super easy to make & a nice addition to the other dips I had prepared.  I found the recipe at Food Renegade & am happy I did because these were a huge hit! I will definitely be making these again!

Note: I was so busy playing host, I forgot to take photos. At least my good friend Kennice got one of the final product!

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Bites
Makes: 32 bites
Cook Time: 75 mins.
How difficult was this for me? Easy! (I also had a 2nd set of hands helping me wrap)

2 medium sweet potatoes
16 pieces center cut bacon, sliced in half giving you 32 pieces
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp chili powder
4 tbsp maple syrup
wood tooth picks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees & bring large pot of water to boil.

Peel sweet potatoes.

Place peeled sweet potatoes in boiling water for 3-5 mins to soften.

Remove & cut length wise into quarters. Cut each quarter in half & then in half again giving you 32 pieces.

Melt butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add chili powder.

Gently toss bites in with butter/chili powder so bites are completely covered.

Take sweet potatoes & wrap in bacon securing with tooth picks.

Once done, drizzle with maple syrup & let set for 3 mins. Then serve!
