This is the ultimate sweet-salty snack.
These Candied Bacon Crackers are a simple and delicious snack. These crackers combine the crunchiness of a butter cracker and the smokey sweetness of candied bacon. They are easy to make with just three ingredients. If you add a pinch cayenne pepper and a pinch black pepper, it will be five! They are a great alternative to crackers or dips, and they also make a great snack spread to add to a party spread.
5m prep time
15m cook time
1 package rectangular butter crackers
8-10 slices bacon
3/4 cup brown sugar
A pinch cayenne pepper
A pinch freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place a wire rack on top.
Arrange crackers on wire rack, leaving some space in between.
Slice bacon into thirds or fourths, depending on what fits crackers best. Place bacon lengthwise on each cracker.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top of each slice of bacon, about 1 heaping teaspoon per cracker. Top with cayenne and black pepper.
Bake until brown sugar starts to melt and bacon becomes crisp, 15-20 minutes.
Allow crackers to cool and harden before serving. Enjoy!
