Sometimes you feel like a pig.  Sometimes you don't.


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.


Required ingredients:

White sugar
Cream
Salt 
Maple syrup
Bacon
Corn syrup (depending on whether you want your nougat crumbly or chewy)
Egg whites
Creamy almond butter
Chocolate

1 lb 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.

Uhh...shouldn't the list of ingredients include BACON?? Step 1 is 'cook bacon' but nowhere do I see how much to use (nor are there amounts shown for the other ingredients). Winging only works if you've done it before.

Please check the individual steps for ingredient amounts.

Yum, yum, and double-yum!
I don't recommend chocolate-dipped phone, though. Too crunchy.

You should enter this in the chocolate contest too!

Oh, I've got something else in mind for that contest. :) I have to get some dry ice first, though.

what mikeasaurus said. Nom nom nom...
Oh dear...

I just imagined this candybar done "the Scottish way" (i.e. dipped in batter and deep-fried). I think I gained two kilograms just entertaining the thought.

Also, my keyboard is now saliva-impaired, but luckily my tablet wipes easily...

mmm...you had me at bacon, and again at maple; and then when it was dipped in chocolate.
