Bacon is bae and deserves to be featured in the snacks and desserts you make, and not just limited to breakfast time. This recipe requires a whole pound of bacon — if you’re a devout bacon-eater, you may want to go up to a pound and a half — so don’t worry, you’ll get your bacon fix. And paired with your bacon is sugar in the form of caramel and maple syrup — what more could you ask from a dessert?
