I accidentally made this recipe a few years ago by mistake.  I had some sliced bacon in a bag with brown sugar and put it in the fridge.  I forgot about it for a day and realized that the bacon had liquefied the brown sugar.  I put it in the oven for about 2 hours on low heat and when I pulled it out i realized the brown sugar had caramelized and I had bacon candy.  I have since refined this recipe to be able to produce the same results in just a few hours.

Step 1: What You Will Need

For the candied bacon you will need the following:

Dark drown sugar
Cayenne pepper
Crushed red pepper

First lay the bacon out flat on a nonstick mat.  I use a Silpat mat I got a Bed Bath and Beyond a few years ago. You will also need a baking sheet with a bit of a lip to it so the bacon grease does not spill out.
