Bacon Caramels

I saw this recipe earlier this week and knew I had to try it. I love any sweet/salty combo and love bacon so I knew this would be a great recipe and it sure was. If you are hesitant to try this recipe, don't be, cause it is amazing! Very good! I drizzled chocolate on top for an added yumminess!

Bacon Caramels
from Not Without Salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

1 cup heavy cream, divided

1/4 cup maple syrup

Reserve 1/2 cup of the heavy cream.

Bacon fried to a crisp. The amount is up to you. I used 8-12 strips of bacon.

Combine all the other ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Stir to combine. Set on medium high heat. Stir occasionally and cook until 240*. The candy is now at firm-ball stage. Remove from the stove and carefully stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cream. Place back on the heat and continue to cook to 245*. Immediately remove from heat and stir in a portion of the crispy bacon. Pour the caramel into a buttered dish (the size depends on how thick you want your caramels. 8×8 = thick caramels 9×13 = thin caramels. You can also use a cookie sheet). Scatter the remaining bacon on top. Let set for at least 3 hours before cutting.
