During the lockdown, my son Ryan has been cooking and baking. He loves to be in the kitchen with his mom who is an amazing baker. A few weeks ago we made candied bacon to have with our pancakes and Ryan wanted to make it again to add it to s'mores.   We all love good food and now our nine-year-old is really enjoying baking. For his birthday back in April, he got an entire baking kit. Now he likes to bake with his mom. He has helped her make cakes, cookies, brownies, and other delicious treats.

A few weeks ago, we were making breakfast and I was getting ready to make bacon in the oven. Ryan asked how people get the bacon sweet and at first, I didn't know what he meant. He said that he had sweet bacon one time and could we make it. I looked it up and he helped me make this delicious treat. It came out great.

Over the weekend, we were getting things ready to bring to a friend's house and we were in charge of bringing the stuff to make s'mores. Ryan piped up thought that candied bacon would be amazing to put on our s'mores. He said he would make the bacon all by himself so he did.

It's super easy to make. You need a pound of bacon, brown sugar (soft), honey, cracked black pepper, and a cookie sheet with parchment paper on top.

  • Place each piece of raw bacon in the brown sugar until covered
  • Lay each piece on the parchment paper, flat and all the way across
  • drizzle honey generously on all pieces of bacon
  • Put some cracked black pepper on the bacon strips (optional)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until desired crispiness

In order to have them fit on the graham crackers, you have to cut the bacon in half.

How do you like your s'mores? We sometimes substitute chocolate for Resee's thin peanut butter cups. Try out Ryan's candied bacon on our next s'mores. You won't be disappointed.
