Recipe of the Month – Bacon Maple Fudge

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.

Ingredients 

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

Directions

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.
