Christmas Candy

It's that time of year again. Time to make Christmas cookies and candies. I like to put them into festive containers and give them as gifts. This year, I'm trying something new. Here's the recipe...

I just came across this recipe for Bacon candy! What an unusual treat this would be for Santa. Think it would get you more gifts?

Bacon Brittle

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon sweet butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup smoked or regular pecans -- chopped
1/2 cup fresh smoked bacon bits

butter a large non-stick baking sheet
In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water over medium heat. Stirring constantly, cook until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Using a candy thermometer, increase heat to high and without stirring, bring the mixture to 290 degrees. Remove from heat.
Stir in the butter, vanilla, baking soda, pecans and bacon bits. When the foam subsides, as thinly as possible, pour the hot mixture on to the baking sheet. Carefully tilt and shake baking sheet to even mixture out. Do not spread with a spatula.
Cool at least 20 minutes and break into small pieces.
Store in a covered container.

Mm, Mm Good!
