Also known as Devils on Horseback, these sinful bacon-wrapped bites are perfect for a Halloween party hors d'oeuvre. With just two ingredients and about five minutes of prep work, they couldn't be easier to prepare either. They're best served warm, so pop them in the oven right before your guests arrive.

A catering service served these at a diplomatic cocktail party in Nairobi, Kenya in 1975 and was the biggest hit back then. No one guessed they were prunes. I've also had them wrapped around pickled watermelon rhines found in the pickle section of some grocery stores and even get higher reviews.

These are a traditional accompaniment to the Christmas turkey in the UK, and very nice they are, too. Try them for that sweet/salt combination that goes so well with turkey. They used to be served as a savoury, the little nibble at the end of a formal meal. 'Angels on Horseback' have oysters, instead of prunes.

This was fantastic... it also works with partially dried apple rings
