Cocktail Bacon Wrapped Weenies - in the Crockpot!

These weenies are a favorite of mine from forever ago. My mom has played in a ten-point pitch club since I was a kid. When it was her turn to host, she'd always make these and my dad and I would sit in the basement watching television and sneaking these snacks out of the kitchen while the ladies were playing cards.

Now, I make them for parties and for football games, whenever the situation calls for sweet and salty meaty treats!

Ingredients:

2 packages cheap hot dogs
2 packages cheap bacon
toothpicks
brown sugar

Assembly:

Cut the hot dogs into quarters. Cut the bacon in half, short ways. Wrap a slice of bacon around each hot dog piece, securing with a toothpick. Place in a crockpot and cover with brown sugar. You'll have to eyeball the amount, I've never measured. Put on low for 6 hours, or on high for 3.

The fat from the bacon melts and combines with the brown sugar making a yummy salty/sweet coating for the snacks.
