  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bacon slices individually onto a baking sheet. Bake until a pale golden brown, about 8 minutes. It should still be flexible, not crisp. Cut slices in half crosswise and let cool.
  2. Wrap one slice of bacon around the sides of each scallop and secure it with a toothpick. (They can be prepared 6 to 8 hours ahead. Just cover and refrigerate.).
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Place the scallops on a baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  4. While the scallops are cooking, boil the cream in a large skillet until it is reduced to about 3/4 of a cup, approximately 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the heat and lower to medium maintaining a steady reduction. Add mustard and maple syrup then boil for approximately another 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spoon sauce on a serving platter. Arrange scallops on the platter, sprinkle with chives and serve.
