Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set a side. Also make sure you have the baking soda measured and ready along with the bacon and the peanuts. Having everything ready is a super important step as you will want to be able to work quickly.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water, butter, maple extract and maple syrup over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium stirring occasionally.
  3. Keep an eye on this, Stirring quite often. You want to cook this mixture until its a light brown in color about 10 minutes or so depending on the size of pot you use. Use a thermometer and cook candy until the mixture reaches 290F
  4. When the thermometer reaches 290F turn off heat and stir in the baking soda. this will make the candy puff up a bit.
  5. Very Quickly!! pour the peanuts and the bacon in and stir. then again Very Quickly! Pour the entire mixture on to the prepared baking sheet and spread out thin with a spatula or forks. you want your brittle to be in between 1/4 to 1/2 an inch thick for the best crunchiness. ( Is crunchiness a word? anyways your know what I mean)
  6. Then let the brittle set until completely cool and hard at room temp. do not put this in the fridge. ( Wikipedia says crunchiness is a word but Webster says its not).
  7. When cool. whack it with something and break into pieces, I used a small pink hammer. Then figure out who your favorite people are then decide weather or not you like them enough to share this amazing treat with or hide it in a closet to eat in private so you don’t have to share. the choice is yours. either way Enjoy!

* You want the bacon to be crispy and crunchy so do not under cook it.
