Step 3: Make Bacon Maple Caramel
1/2 C cream
1/2 C bacon drippings
chopped bacon from step 1
1/2 t salt, if needed (depending on how salty your bacon is)
Heat the syrup, cream, and bacon drippings in a pot. Chop your bacon and add it. Boil, stirring often until the temperature reaches 230 degrees F. Pour the caramel over the nougat and spread it out evenly.
