Candied Bacon Nut Brittle

Serves 6

What a fun, twist on a gift! Find everything at The Country Cupboard.
For the candied bacon

8 ounces slab bacon cut into small cubes

2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
zest of 1/2 a lemon (Lemon essential oil works really well in place of zest)
dash cayenne pepper
pinch of kosher salt
pinch of black pepper
For the candied nuts
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
dash cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the bacon by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl and tossing until bacon is fully coated. Spread the bacon out onto the parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes until bubbly.
  4. Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the nuts in the same bowl as the bacon, toss until well coated.
  5. Remove bacon from the baking sheet using a slotted spoon to reduce the amount of grease/fat that gets picked up and place in the bowl with the nuts.
  6. Change out parchment paper on the baking sheet, toss the nuts and bacon together until combined then spread out evenly in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing once halfway through. Turn off oven, open the door a crack and let sit in the oven for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit until hardened and cooled.
  7. Break into pieces, place in a sealed jar for gifts or storage.
