Bacon Candy

Bacon Candy Picture

Method #1

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cut the bacon in 1/2 making to shorter pieces out of each slice. Cut each of these shorter slices in half again (lengthwise) making a total of 16 strips of bacon. Set aside.

3. Mix up the rub with your fingers, or a whisk, being sure to break up any lumps of brown sugar.

4. Roll the bacon strips in the rub, being sure to get a good coating on the top and bottom of each piece. Place on a rack set in a sheet pan.

5. Let it rest to completely cool before serving. After it's cool, you can eat it as strips, or, chop it up to use as a garnish for your favorite ice cream.

6. As you can see by the picture, these are pretty dark colored, to say the least. Don't let that fool you because the taste was Super. Because all I had on the boast when I was testing this recipe was my normal thick cut bacon, these cooked for 30 minutes, and still were not as crisp as they should have been. The moral, USE THIN SLICED BACON.

Method #2
Thick Sliced Bacon

1. Place half strips of bacon on a rack in a preheated 300 degree oven.

2. Cook until the strips are almost crisp.

3. Coat with the rub while it's still warm, and continue to back until the sugar has melted, about 15 minutes more.

How to Use

  • Crumble, then use it to top ice cream.
  • Set the thin strips in a shot glass, and snack.
  • Grind it to a powder, and make Bacon Popcorn, Bacon French Fries, or Bacon Potato Chips.
  • Crumble, then use on top of a brownie.

I think you get the idea, this is really something you can have FUN with!
