Add a little sizzle to your garnish with a bacon swizzle stick. These are so easy to make and add so much fun to anything you can garnish with bacon. And trust me, there is a lot you can garnish with bacon. Here’s how I made them…Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cover a baking sheet with foil and wrap chopsticks with foil.

Cut thick cut bacon in half the long way and spiral each piece around a chopstick.

Let cool and slide foil and bacon off of chopstick.

Carefully remove foil from inside of bacon. It might just slide out or you might have to “un-spiral” foil from bacon.

Store in an airtight container. Refrigerate if storing overnight and bring to room temp before serving.
