Recipe of the Month – Bacon Maple Fudge


My mom found this recipe at the end of a book she was reading (Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon). It is a basic maple fudge recipe with bacon added to it because…well everything is better with bacon. It was delicious but my mom and I think it could use more bacon because…well what isn’t better with more bacon in it. If you don’t like bacon, then leave it out and simply enjoy some maple fudge.


1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup butter

Pinch of salt

¼ cup pure maple syrup

2 t. vanilla

5 slices of cooked thick cut bacon, cut and crumbled


Combine sugars, cream, butter, salt and maple syrup into a sauce pan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and continue to stir until mixture reaches the soft ball stage (drop a small amount into cold water -it should look like a small ball sinking) or use a candy thermometer). Remove from heat and add vanilla and crumbled bacon. Let mixture sit for about 10-15 minutes to cool and thicken up. Stir vigorously until mixture loses its gloss. Turn it into a buttered dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
