"I adapted this recipe one night after having seen a peanut-bacon brittle on TV. It is sooooo good. I have trouble waiting for this stuff to cool before eating!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring sugar, water, corn syrup, and maple syrup to a boil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Heat to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.
  2. Stir pecans and vanilla into syrup mixture until mixture begins to turn brown; add bacon. Cook until bacon mixture turns light brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir baking soda into bacon mixture. Pour brittle out onto a sheet of parchment paper set on a heat-proof surface and cool brittle to room temperature before breaking into pieces, at least 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't own a candy thermometer, occasionally hold spoon above mixture, allowing it to drip off spoon. When mixture is at hard ball stage, it will 'hair' off the spoon when falling, looking like a clear spider web.

This recipe was delicious. I found it slightly difficult, but it was also my first time making any type of brittle.
