Move on over Peanuts..Bacon is in the house!
Ohh yeah..now this is a snack marriage made in sweet & salty Bacon heaven!
That’s right, Salty, Smoky, Candied Slabs of Crispy Bacon suspended in sweet & crunchy Brittle! What a fun way to change things up and give people something to talk about. I gave slabs of this Brittle out as holiday treats to friends and neighbors, wrapped with a tiny hammer for silly smashing and they went Bacon BONKERS!
What you’ll need:
9×13″ Baking Sheet
Room Temp Butter, just to coat the Baking Sheet
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
3/4 cup cold Water
Pinch of Salt
1 lb Crispy and Crumbled Bacon
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Baking Soda
Brush a 9×13″ Baking Sheet with butter and set aside.
Combine the Sugar, Corn Syrup, Water and Salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Cook, swirling occasionally, until mixture reaches the softball stage on a candy thermometer (238 degrees). Stir in the crispy and crumbled Bacon, continue to cook, stirring often so the Bacon doiean’t burn, until the mixture is amber in color!
Carefully stir in the Vanilla and Baking Soda. The mixture will foam up in the pan.
Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and quickly spread it evenly. Set aside until it’s completely cool.
Gather everyone around and take turns breaking the Brittle into pieces with a hammer. Giggle, Eat..Repeat! ~Enjoy!
