Candied Bacon Sundaes - Recipe

OK So It's time to finally share the recipe Candied Bacon Sundaes 


These are very easy, and very addicting 

You will need:
  • 2 Strips of Bacon/Person
  • Brown Sugar 
  • Course Ground Black Pepper
  • Vanilla Ice cream
  • Thin Caramel Sauce (Like Hershey's)
  • Whipping Cream

First you make the bacon:
  1. Lay the bacon out on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet.
  2. sprinkle brown sugar and black pepper generously

I borrowed this picture, it is so well photographed

      3. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, sugar will caramelize

At this point you have already made something which will cause angels to weep with joy

But we aren't done yet!

Next chop the bacon into 1/2 inch strips and layer 1 slice worth under and 1 over a big scoop of vanilla ice cream

lightly drizzle caramel sauce and top with whipped cream and a large piece of the bacon

Yeah it's pretty awesome
