I am eternally grateful to Christopher Butler for sharing with me the delicious yet dangerous recipe for bacon candy. He is also responsible for my Baconista profile picture minus the bacon thought bubble (yes, I replaced my friend's head with bacon). Thanks, Chris!
-cube some slab bacon
-toss in brown sugar
-spread on a cookie sheet
-bake at 300° for 30-45 minutes
The result is an irresistible pile of giant, sugar-coated bacon bits which also make a lovely garnish for other desserts. Since I've been on this bacon/chocolate kick lately, I added them to a plate of chocolate cheese cake. Bacon. Cheese. Chocolate. What??
