Took this to a fall party and everyone loved them.

I’ve seen this recipe so many times over the years that it makes my head spin (and there was an identical recipe on this site prior to this recipe being posted). Just be sure to let it cook for a while, so the alcohol cooks out out of the sauce and you’re left with that deep bourbon flavor. It’s simple, and it never fails to please.

Yum, I was looking for something simple and tasty for our 4th of July neighborhood bbq. I've never had these before - really impressed with the flavor and so dang simple. We made them tonight as a snack - just to test the booze dogs out. Oh snap! So good, my husband is polishing them off as I type this review - thanks so much. Cooked a little longer (as recommended by another review) - delicious. I'm sure this will be a hit this holiday weekend!

These were really good and so easy to make. Great for Sunday Football TV. You make them and they will come!
