Cousin Amy’s Bacon Brittle!

May 13, 2013

9×13″ Baking Sheet

Room Temp Butter, just to coat the Baking Sheet

1 1/2 cups Sugar

1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup

3/4 cup cold Water

Pinch of Salt

1 lb Crispy and Crumbled Bacon

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 tsp. Baking Soda


Brush a 9×13″ Baking Sheet with butter and set aside.

Combine the Sugar, Corn Syrup, Water and Salt in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the  sugar has dissolved.  Cook, swirling occasionally, until mixture reaches the softball stage on a candy thermometer (238 degrees).  Stir in the crispy and crumbled Bacon, continue to cook, stirring often so the Bacon doiean’t burn, until the mixture is amber in color!

Carefully stir in the Vanilla and Baking Soda.  The mixture will foam up in the pan.

Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and quickly spread it evenly.  Set aside until it’s completely cool.
