Expert Tips

The process of heating sugar until it liquefies and becomes syrup is called caramelization. The sweet and slightly spicy sauce that's made from the sugar and seasonings also crisps the bacon in these flavorful, fun roll-ups.

Kids will love these hot dogs with their sweet and salty combination of sugar and bacon. Serve these little treats at a birthday party, and you're guaranteed grins all around.
