If you like salty and sweet, this is a flavorful and easy recipe for you!


12 slices of thick cut bacon

1/2 cup of light brown sugar

1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

Pinch of black pepper (optional)

Chocolate morsels for melting

Candy/sprinkle toppings


- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

- You will need a baking sheet with edges to catch the grease. To

ease the cleanup, line with foil. To lessen bacon grease, spray a

cooking rack with nonstick spray and place over the baking sheet.

- Pour brown sugar in a bowl (mix with cinnamon if desired)

- dip bacon slices or sprinkle sugar onto bacon (both sides)

- place bacon on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes (or until

bacon seems crispy and caramelized) - keep a close watch because

you don’t want to burn the sugar.

- in a microwaveable safe bowl, add chocolate of choice and keep

microwaving for :15 segments until melted (do not overheat chocolate)

- dip one end of bacon into chocolate.

- decorate with festive sprinkles or crumbled peppermint (optional)
