Maple Bacon Fudge

It's fudge time.

It's Easter time.

They go one go hand in hand!

Every year it has been our tradition at Easter time that Husband and I would bake fudge (to make me less mopey about being allergic to chocolate).

We really only ever make it just this one time of the year, so whenever I send him a photo of fudge on the stove, he knows Easter is near!

But I wanted to introduce you to something kind of amazing this year....





I used my trusty old basic fudge recipe and then added some maple-candied-bacon at the end. 

Dice finely 3 rashes of bacon and cook until crispy. You want it to be super crunchy so that it candies in the maple syrup. Add two tablespoons of maple syrup and let it bubble for about a minute. Strain and let cool, this will candy the bacon. 


When the fudge is cooked and poured into a small dish, mix through the candied maple bacon and then set in the fridge for a few hours. 



And then let the flavour explosion in your mouth start!!!


The salty/crunchy/sweet/velvety combination is like brunch in bite!

But just in case people are hesitant to try, I also have some trusty salted caramel fudge, which, of course, is also glittered!!!!


Do you have any fun Easter traditions?

  2. Ummm, what's a rash? A package?

    Also... you've created a Pinterest dilemma here; delectable desserts board or bacon board. Hmmmm.

    1. Oh, oops, you've stumbled on another Aussieism - - A "rasher" is a strip of bacon! I see it made it to delectable desserts, always a good choice, but I would have recommended your "money saving ideas" board because one batch of fudge will sustain you for a month!!! xx
