Maple Bacon Treat Thing

So…this wasn’t my idea and I’m not taking credit for it, but there was no printed recipe…just a video.

You need:

  • About 1/2 pound of bacon, cooked and cut into pieces
  • Brown sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • Tiny bit of salt, aluminum foil and a pan.

Line a 13” x 9” pan with foil.  Sprinkle lightly with salt (keeps it from sticking).

Open and spread out one roll of Pillsbury crescent rolls, pressing at the seams to make a flat surface.  Using a fork, pierce the dough all over…like you would a pie crust (this is to keep it flat).

Measure 1/4 cup of maple syrup and pour over dough…use a spatula to spread out evenly.

Sprinkle with brown sugar…about six tablespoons.

Chop up 1/2 pound pre-cooked bacon and sprinkle all over the thing.  (Note: I know, what you’re thinking: “Who has leftover bacon?”  I recommend cooking the whole package, serving a couple of pieces and quickly storing the leftovers out of sight until you want to make this thing!  Seriously hide the bacon, because, well, BACON!)

Repeat with more syrup and brown sugar. The house will smell awesome by the way!

Bake at 325* for 25 minutes.  Cool and it’s suppose to be crackable…like peanut brittle when cool…but I am having trouble waiting for that stage!
