Candied Bacon


Bacon rules in my house. I wanted to incorporate it into dessert somehow, but didn't feel like making bacon ice cream. What to do? I've taken to cooking bacon in my oven instead of a fry pan on the range top. It's less messy, retains its elongated and flattened shape, and doesn't sit in a pool of fat. How else could I have fun with bacon, then? Here's how.

What you will need

8 pieces thick-sliced, good quality bacon (avoid maple or sugar-flavored)

1 handful brown sugar (dark or light)

1 pinch chipotle powder

(optional) melted dark chocolate
