When we do this we soak the chestnuts in soy sauce first, roll them in sugar, then wrap them in bacon. Another twist is to put a sauce of 1 part sugar and 1 part ketchup boiled together then poured over the cooked bacon water chestnuts. I'm excited to try your version.

I marinate the water chestnut in soysauce then wrap the bacon around and secure with a toothpick and microwave until the bacon is done. Be sure to put paper towels on the plate first and then on top

I've made these for years with a few additions, marinade the chestnuts in soy, brown sugar, minced ginger. Wrap in bacon secure with toothpicks and bake in a hot oven until the bacon is very crisp. squeeze some fresh lemon juice over all and aliberal grinding of pepper. Yummy! much cheaper than scallops and bacon but equally addictive!
