When the idea of bacon fudge first entered our mind, we thought, "Can we really make Bacon Fudge?" Then we figured, "What the fudge?" Might as well try. There aren't a whole lot ways we can Fudge it up, so we just said Fudge it. Turns out our Bacon Fudge recipe is pretty Fudgen good.
- 12 strips maple-smoked bacon,with 2 strips reserved for garnish
- 1 1/2 c chocolate chips
- 1/2 c peanut butter chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 4 Tbs unsalted butter
- 1/2 tsp maple extract
1.)Coat an 8-inch-square pan with cooking spray.
2.)In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, turning several times, until browned and done, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop finely. Reserve 2 of the chopped slices for garnish.
3.)Combine all ingredients except bacon in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until chips and butter are melted, and mixture is thick and smooth. 4.)Remove from heat. Stir in bacon.
5.)Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle the reserved chopped bacon on top and lightly press with your fingertips. Cover with aluminum foil and chill in the refrigerator until firm, at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
6.)Slice into 7 equal rows to create 49 squares. It’s a good idea to use a ruler to ensure equal-sized pieces. Serve at about room temperature.
