  4. In a separate bowl, add brown sugar.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Pat drumettes with a paper towel, making sure they are dry.
  7. Sprinkle chili powder mixture over each drumette; set on a dry paper towel.
  8. Roll a half piece of bacon around each drumette.
  9. Secure with a toothpick, if needed.
  10. Roll each bacon- wrapped drumette in brown sugar.
  11. Shake off any excess.
