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.
OMG Bacon candy will have to try this for sure.
Ummm candied bacon... Is this even edible?!
This looks really good! Thanks for sharing and do have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
