Instructions
Candied Bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Measure out brown sugar and maple syrup into a small bowl and mix well. Lightly brush bacon on both sides with brown sugar mixture and lay out on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for 10-15 minutes more or until very crispy. Watch the bacon carefully to prevent burning. Note: If the sugar burns on the pan, transfer bacon strips to a second prepped baking sheet and continue baking until crispy.
  4. When bacon is crispy, remove from oven and place on cooling rack. When cool to the touch, trim away any uncooked fate and then cut bacon strips into 1/4-1/2" pieces. Set aside.
Toffee
  1. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Using the additional tablespoon of butter, generously butter the aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set baking sheet aside. Do not use cooking spray, your toffee will become greasy.
  2. In a heavy bottomed saucepan with a candy thermometer attached, combine butter, sugar and salt.
  3. Heat on medium low, stirring constantly until the butter is melted.
  4. Stirring slowly and consistently, allow mixture to come to a boil.
  5. Continue stirring and cook until the mixture becomes dark golden brown and reaches 300°. To double check, place a tiny drop of the mixture into a glass of ice water. It will form hard brittle threads that will break when bent.
  6. Being careful not to splash yourself, pour toffee mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow the toffee to spread out. If necessary, butter coat the back of a spoon and spread out the toffee.
  7. Sprinkle toffee with the finely chopped chocolate. Allow 2-3 minutes for the chocolate to soften and then spread it out evenly over the toffee.
  8. Immediately sprinkle bacon all over the chocolate, gently pressing the bacon into the chocolate. If desired, sprinkle chocolate with flake salt.
  9. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes-1 hour.
  10. Break into pieces and store in refrigerated airtight container until needed.
