Bacon Candy?

By / Food / August 9th, 2013 / 2

As a child, my favourite meal was pancakes and bacon. In fact, I could take or leave the pancakes – it was the bacon smothered in maple syrup that I adored. Once, every so often, my father would make us breakfast for supper – we were the happiest kids on the block! I think it was those special family meals that solidified my love affair with for the sweet and salty combo. I’m not the only one.

Bacon candy, the ultimate sweet-salty combination, is a popular treat for many Canadians. The newly opened Magnum store – an ultra-premium ice cream parlour – in downtown Toronto, features bacon as a topping. Walk into any gourmet bakery and you will find an assortment of bacon-spiked treats. But, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your kitchen to enjoy a little bacon love. Here are a few recipes that will have your guests (and family) begging for more.

Hint – chicken and turkey bacon don’t work…trust me, I tried!
