Bacon (for candied bacon)
Brown Sugar (for candied bacon)
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Chocolate Candy Melts*
For the Candied Bacon:
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch squares; cook until crisp and drain on paper towels.
In small pan, add brown sugar and cook over high heat. Stir constantly; once sugar is melted add bacon. Spread mixture onto parchment in thin layer and let harden and cool completely. Crumble and set aside.
For the Truffles:
Combine sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, maple syrup, and butter in large saucepan over medium high heat. Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat to low and cook until it resembles thick caramel sauce, about 7 minutes. Test for doneness by dropping small amount of maple cream into glass of cold water – it should solidify into soft, pliable ball. Remove from heat and let chill 15 minutes.
Melt chocolate candy according to package directions. Meanwhile, roll teaspoons of maple cream mixture into balls. Using fork, dip balls into melted chocolate, let excess chocolate drip off. Top immediately with crumbled candied bacon. Let chocolate set completely before serving.
*Candy melts are easy-to-melt wafers for candy making, molding, dipping or coating, like those available from Wilton.
