  • Well, bacon jam works, why not bacon brittle. I will have to add this one to my to-do list for the holidays~

    December 06, 2010
    • If you like bacon jam, like I do, you’re really going to like this brittle. It’s addicting!

    You are right…sometimes when we pair two unlikely things, the result is something truly divine! Bacon and peanut brittle could possibly be two of my all time favorite foods. I cannot believe that you have combined the two—I would have never imagined to do such a thing. I am intrigued and I can’t wait to try this marriage of salt and sweet.

    How long do you think the shelf life is on this? If I were to make ahead for Christmas Presents?

    December 04, 2010
    • Hi Amy – You should be good making this up to 2 weeks before giving it as gifts. (This will be in my Christmas candy gift package as well.) Just remember to get it broken up and into an airtight container as soon as it’s cooled off. If you don’t, it will get a bit sticky on top, but is still crunchy. You’re going to have some very happy people on your Christmas list this year! :)

      Can this bacon brittle be frozen to last longer.

      September 13, 2011
  • So I haven’t totally been sold on the bacon in sweets, particularly chocolate…but here’s the thing. One of my favourite things ever growing up was a bacon and peanut butter sandwich. So I think bacon peanut brittle would be REALLY good! I am going to give this one a try.

    December 03, 2010
    • I think you’re really going to like this then. Leave off the chocolate though. This stuff is addicting. (consider yourself warned) :)

      December 03, 2010
  • Don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything like this, intriguing :) Great relationship advice too.

  • Nice work Pamela! This brittle offers all the sweet & salty greatness a gal could ask for. Those chunks of bacon are awesome!! xo

  • What a stunning holiday recipe! Would you like to submit it to my contest to win a cookbook? Just wanting to share the holiday cheer (and exposure to your blog) Would love for you to win :) http://ow.ly/3j61M

    • Thanks Melody! I sent the photo to you, but I am actually in the Foodista cookbook (which is wonderful btw). My blueberry compote is in there.

      December 02, 2010
  • You can never have too much brittle around the holidays and wow what great idea to add the bacon! Wanna exchange Christmas cookies by mail? We are gonna make a bunch the next few weekends…

    December 02, 2010
    • I’m all in for that. But since I don’t do the cookies…it would have to be one of my candies (maybe this one?) Let me know. I love to eat cookies, just not make them.

      December 02, 2010
  • Wow what an amazing peanut brittle! Very nicely done! So unique too!

    December 02, 2010
  • Joy

    I love the recipe.

    December 02, 2010
  • WOW. This brittle looks amazing– I can smell is from here!! I am such a sucker for the sweet-savory flavor combo, and this will make my tastebuds to cartwheels! The Booze Hound will want to marry me all over again, hah!

    December 02, 2010
    • This is a vows renewal recipe for sure!
