Maple almond candy bars are great, but they don't have the magic of bacon. These bars do. They're a bit rich, so you might not want to eat a whole candy bar in one sitting.
Corn syrup (depending on whether you want your nougat crumbly or chewy)
Creamy almond butter
Step 1: Cook the Bacon
Place the bacon in a pan over medium low heat. Cook gently until bacon is crispy. Reserve the bacon drippings. Let bacon cool as you make the nougat.
I bought fresh, never frozen bacon from a local butcher. It didn't have as much salt as other bacon I've had, so I made sure to add a tiny bit of salt to the caramel.
