Seasoning options: For smoky flavor, use the full 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika. For slightly less smoky flavor, use ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika. For no smoky flavor, omit the smoked paprika For smoky flavor with a slight touch of heat, use 1 teaspoon ground chipotle in place of the smoked paprika. Be sure to use a baking rack when cooking these. If you put the bacon bites straight on the foil the brown sugar will start to burn and the bottoms of your bites will get black. Cooking the bites in a cold oven to start with helps them cook more evenly and prevents them from cooking too quickly (and burning).
