Bacon Brittle

Sweet and savory, this Bacon Brittle is the perfect treat that will surprise and delight everyone that takes a bite. Crunch on!


  • 8 oz. bacon, cooked your favorite way until crisp (I used a smoked maple bacon.)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter, unsalted
  • 3 Tbsp. light corn syrup or golden syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • Coarse sea salt


Butter a rimmed baking sheet or line it with a Silpat. 
In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, water, butter, and syrup.

Bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture reaches 300°F on a candy thermometer, about 10-15 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda, then the bacon bits. Immediately pour the mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Use a large spoon (If it sticks, oil it lightly) to quickly spread the brittle into a thin, even layer.

Sprinkle with sea salt.

Allow the brittle to cool completely, then break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

Prep Time:
