1 pound bacon strips 15 grissini-style bread sticks, broken in half 1 box dark brown sugar
Cut bacon strips in half and lay them out on a cutting board.
Break the whole bread sticks into 4-inch lengths. Sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar so that the bacon is completely coated. Press the sugar onto the bacon with your fingers. Continue to sprinkle sugar and press it on until no more sugar will adhere.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Set a rack over a foil-lined baking sheet.
Roll the bacon strips, sugar side in, around the bread sticks in a spiral fashion. Be sure to begin as close to the bread stick edge as possible and roll very tightly.
Place seam side down on the rack. Bake about 40 minutes, but watch carefully so that the sugar doesn't burn in the last 10 minutes of cooking. Remove them from the oven and let rest for an hour on the rack to become firm.
