Default Bacon Caramel (Candy Recipes)


Prep Time: 3+ hours | Cook Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour | Serves: 15
Dessert Candy American

Ingredients:






Bacon caramel like a chewy SKOR Bar with bacon. How much more of a comforting flavor combination could there ever be?

To do this, you'll need a couple of things beforehand, namely a pyrex dish or a couple of deep cookie sheets. You'll also need a candy thermometer and a silicone spatula, which is great for keeping the crevices of your saucepan from solidifying.

Start by frying up a good portion of bacon. I used about 300 grams worth, or 3/4 of a package. Cook as much as you can to be nice and crispy, without burning anything, which can be done over medium low heat.

Step 1:






Once the bacon's finished cooking, blot it well and remove any stubborn fatty bits that refuse to become crispy. Then trim it down into large-ish bacon bits that'd work nicely in a Caesar salad. Reserve in paper towel to promote further fat drainage.

Add to a deep saucepan the following:

1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup ****er
1/2 cup heavy cream
3-4 oz bourbon or maple syrup.

Step 2:






Over low to medium heat, dissolve everything while stirring constantly. Get your candy thermometer ready and then turn up the heat until reaches 240F. Don't forget to keep stirring!

At that point, you'll be at the firm-ball stage and things should look a lot like this:
