Chocolate Dipped Bacon Brittle

Had ya at bacon didn't I?

While on the computer the other day I came across an awsome looking recipe for candied bacon dipped in chocolate. Now, anyone that knows me, knows my love for bacon. I literally buy 2 packs a week. 

Anyway, I was fixing to head to bed and call it a day when this idea hit me. Why not make brittle with bacon instead of nuts? I thought I had come up with something new and could not wait to experiment.

The next day I headed back to the computer and to my disappointment, it seemed that I along with a hundred other people have already come up with this idea. They must have read my mind during the night.

 
Get a glass bowl ready, this is made in the microwave. I tried it once in a plastic bowl and it ruined both the bowl and sugar. It was just nasty. So Make sure you have a GLASS bowl.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light syrup (karo)
1/4 Tbs salt
1 Tbs butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
Bacon crumbles

Combine sugar, syrup and salt.
Microwave 4 minutes (be careful it will be hot and bubbly).
Stir in butter, bacon and vanilla and cook another 4 minutes.
Stir in baking soda an pour quickly onto a greased cookie sheet. Cool approx 20 minutes then break into pieces.
Once completely cool, dip each piece into melted chocolate and lay on wax paper to dry. Sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy.



Oh. So you like the mug cozy I made too? I just got an order in of these adorable birch buttons from Wearhouse Industries. They were special made for me. Thanks Randy and Laura! I love how they look on these cute crocheted warmers. I sale these mug cozies in my Etsy shop if you want one. I can do all colors.
