Bacon-Wrapped Lil' Smokies (best appetizer ever!)

Imagine that you are Aladdin and find the magic lamp.  After gently rubbing the side, a genie pops out.  Let's all pray that it's not with the voice of Robin Williams though.  If that were the case, I'd bury that lamp back into the cave of wonders.  Anywho- If you had three wishes, what would they be?  An unlimited supply of money?  A dancing llama named Josie?  A flying car?  A genie with the voice of Jerry Seinfeld?  Well, I think one of my wishes would be a plate of these!  I'm telling you... this is my new favorite appetizer, and I will make them time and time and time again.  They were the perfect blend of salty, sweet, and meaty.  Besides, who doesn't love bacon?  In fact, once in the grocery store my husband saw this girl holding a package of bacon.  She yelled down the aisle to her dad, "Hey, dad... I cannot LIVE without this bacon."  Amen, sister.  Amen.

1 pkg Lil' Smokies
1 package of bacon
brown sugar

Cut the whole slab of bacon into thirds.  Wrap one Lil' Smoky with a piece of bacon.  Place it seam side down on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Continue with the rest of them.  Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until the bacon is starting to brown.   Remove from the oven and place a toothpick in each to serve.  Sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top for looks.
