I made that!

Some xmas candy.

Posted in All Sugar All The Time, The Candy Store, Yes We Can! by brandi on December 17, 2008

Yesterday I woke up with a head cold. It was sad. But instead of lying under the covers all day, I invited Pantea over for a holiday cooking marathon. Xmas presents: check.


Of course no holiday baking is complete without some brittle.


And some pretty good peanut and sea salt brittle, if I do say so myself.


And pear butter. Deliciously spicy pear butter.  Liquid pie I call it. This year is all about pears for me. Pear & molassas upside down cakes, pear pies w/ pecan crust, pear and ginger crisps…I just can’t stop.


Yes, it’s bacon. Candied bacon. And yes, I cut it up with scissors.


That’s right. Candied bacon toffee. With sea salt and a hint of cayenne. The piece de resistance. My new favorite candy. EVER.

    Your Candied Bacon Toffee looks divine – is there any chance you would share the recipe?

      Gosh, it was so long ago, and before I began actually writing down my recipes! I know I started with this recipe:
      but after a few rounds it had morphed into something I like better, but I don’t remember what that was. Happy experimenting! Just remember to store it in the fridge, because it IS meat, after all…
