Bacon Candy and Bacon Desserts Recipes
Bacon is the new candy
Lately it seems all the rage to add bacon to various dessert items that you'd never really think would taste better with bacon.
Sure, scallops taste better with bacon, and asparagus tastes better with bacon, and burgers taste better with bacon. But does chocolate or ice cream or pumpkin pie really taste better with bacon? You bet!
Here's a round-up of some of the best Bacon sweets and dessert recipes online. Hate to cook? There's also some delicious bacon flavored candies and desserts that you can buy. How about chocolate with bacon in it? Oh yeah!
