Maple Bacon Brittle
Makes 40 Servings • Hands-On Time: 15 Min. • Total Time: 1 Hour
Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
Melt butter in a 2-qt. saucepan with a heavy bottom over medium heat.
Stir in the brown sugar and maple syrup. Bring to a rolling boil and cook until mixture registers 300° on a candy thermometer,* 10 to 15 min
Remove pan from heat, stir in the baking powder and bacon bits. Immediately pour hot mixture onto prepared baking sheet.
Use a rubber spatula sprayed with cooking spray to spread the mixture until it’s about 1/4" thick.
Cool on a wire rack until hard, about 30 to 45 min. (Depending on room temperature.)
Break into small pieces. Store in a dry location in an airtight container.
*If you don’t have a candy thermometer, cook until a small spoonful of mixture hardens into a brittle thread when drizzled into ice water.
