Yup. I totally went there. Added bacon to a Christmas candy. Okay, in absolute fairness I can’t claim that it was my idea to do so. But I can claim to know a good thing when I see it. And these bad boys are good.
Last year I focused on savory treats for the holidays, but this year I’m whipping up sweet snacks and they all contain peanuts or peanut butter. I love both—pretty much everyone in my family does. My brother and his kids are particularly fond of peanut butter. And my nephews LOVE bacon. This become apparent after they spent 15 minutes sharing with me the many virtues of bacon a few years ago.
You can’t sneak anything by your Auntie Tanya. She’s a rocket scientist. 😀
Anyway, once I saw these delectable goodies, I knew they were making my “nice” list this Christmas. They are sinfully delicious. Often times I give away most of the sweets I make or otherwise they may spoil. But not these babies. I selfishly kept them all for myself. So good.
I always figure everyone indulges a little bit at Christmas, but I might have to watch my nephews. Otherwise they may lick the plate clean and not let anyone else try one. Or two. Or three or four. I’m not judging. 🙂
