Crispy Bars Made With Salty Bacon!

There are few things that go together as well as maple syrup and bacon or peanut butter and chocolate. As duos, these flavors knock your taste buds into overdrive with the perfect mix of sweet and salty or rich and nutty. Because these ingredient pairs go so well together, we thought heck, why not mix them all up into one crispy, bite-size square? Which is exactly how these incredibly mind-blowing maple bacon crunch bars came to be.

Crispy bacon, rich chocolate, peanut butter and maple syrup, all mixed together into one delectable bar. The bacon lends just the right amount of saltiness without overpowering the sweetness of the maple and the richness of the chocolate. Trust us, after one bite of this baby, you'll never look at your old candy bars the same way.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/8 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups rice cereal (or corn flakes)
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions: 

  1. Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with foil. You want enough foil so the edges hang over the pan. Liberally cover foil with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix sugar, maple syrup and peanut butter in a medium-size saucepan. Put over medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
  3. Mix cereal and bacon together in a large mixing bowl. Pour melted peanut butter and syrup mixture into the cereal mixture and combine.
  4. Using your hands, push the mixture down into the pan.
  5. Melt chocolate in another saucepan over medium-high heat.
  6. Pour melted chocolate over the top of the candy bars, smoothing it with a spatula if necessary.
  7. Chill mixture for at least two hours or until hard. Cut into bars and enjoy!

Mmmmm! I substituted the maple syrup for Mrs. Butterworths (that's what I had)and bacon bits(to save time and energy). I would defiantly double or triple the recipe next time.

Wow, this is like breakfast, lunch and dessert all rolled into one! I am willing to try this just to see how bacon, peanut butter and chocolate taste together. The pictures sure make these treats look delicious. I deserve a reward every once in a while and these crunch bars look like just the thing to pamper myself with.
