Directions

  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.

I did try this recipe as written and while the flavor was very good, it turned into a giant lump of very firm sticky chewy caramel--not brittle at all. I looked up other peanut brittle recipes and found what I think is an error in this one. This needs to be heated to 300 degrees rather than 250 degrees. I also upped the amount of baking soda to 1 1/4 teaspoons to make it a bit lighter. I made this recipe again with my changes and it turned out great!!! Bacon makes everything better!!!!
