Believe me, I would never make this if I didn't have a boyfriend obsessed with bacon. The idea of sweets and bacon don't mix too well for me, although I heard people say bacon tastes better with everything - including ice cream. Bacon ice cream...eww. Haha, I never tried it...it actually may be good. If you have tried it, let me know if it is delicious!
The bacon pralines tasted pretty good, if you didn't tell me bacon was in it, I don't think I would have known. Without farther delay, the bacon praline recipe is below:
- 1 pound thick-cut bacon
- 3 tablespoons plus 2 cups light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 1/4 cups pecans, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon table salt
