Bacon isn’t just for breakfast these days. Sure, we’ve seen it in salads and sandwiches, but now it has taken over the dessert world. It’s topping ice cream, sneaking into brownies, and gracefully accenting pies.
We’ve even found a way to make it into candy. What? Bacon candy? I know everyone loves bacon AND everyone loves candy, so why not put them together and make candied bacon? So…candied bacon…how do we make it?
It’s really easy. Start off with thick cut slices of bacon placed on a foil-lined pan, and sprinkle generously with brown sugar.
Bake in a 350 degree oven turning once for about 20 minutes until your bacon looks brown and crispy. Let it cool on a wire rack. If you’re looking for a snack, just cut the candied bacon into 1-inch pieces and voila, an addicting and satisfying munchie. Just try to stop yourself from eating every last piece.
I decided to channel my naughty side and sneak candied bacon into one of my favorite treats of all time…chocolate chip cookies.
These Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies are so sinful, they’ll send you straight to confession after one bite.
Sweet chocolate chip cookies that have a surprise bite of smoky bacon inside — you’ll have people stumped as to what the surprise ingredient is!
