To make this recipe, you’ll need shrimp, thick-cut bacon, salted butter, brown sugar and chipotle powder. Easy!

The most important step in the full recipe is to thoroughly clean, peel and devein the shrimp. From there, the rest of the preparation is simple. Each piece of shrimp gets wrapped in a slice of that thick-cut bacon and skewered with a toothpick to keep it all in place. The rest of the ingredients combine to create a mouthwatering glaze to brush onto the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

Once the shrimp are wrapped and slathered with that amazing butter, they go into the oven for 15 minutes to bake before they get another glaze, then a quick trip to the broiler. The result? A caramelized, buttery, savory bite your guests will crave.

In fact, we think the hardest part of this recipe is making enough to keep up with your game day party guests because they’ll be piling these on their plates! Though you could also distract them with some other tasty appetizers, like jalapeno popper egg rolls or chicken wonton tacos.

Happy eating!
