Ready to do a little baking in Baconia??
I hope you are……….and I think you’ll like this one even if it’s ever so slightly overloaded with ingredients. It’s yumminess MORE than makes up for having a longer grocery list (although I must say my Mom had most of this stuff in our pantry anyway!).
Yes I think we probably have the best equipped kitchen in the universe Chef………..and I thank you from my Kingly heart every Saturday when you allow me to mess up your pantry, use every pot and pan and utencil there is in this place and make a huge mess all for the sake of eating ANYTHING that has bacon as an ingredient!
Today’s recipe is a dessert………..and I’ve served these before here on the blog on special occasions but never given you the recipe………..are you ready Bacon Fans????
Chocolate Magic Bacon Bars
18 KRAFT Caramels (I say KRAFT because those are the easiest to find but any caramel candies will do)
1 Tbsp. 2% milk
1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
3/4 cup Slivered Almonds, toasted, coarsely chopped (I don’t bother toasting them but you can if you want to)
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted (again not necessary to toast but it does make it crunchier)
6 slices Bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces, cooked (yes of course you can make more bacon if you want to…….!)
Heat oven to 350°F.
Microwave caramels and 2% milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every 30 sec.
Line 13×9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Press cookie dough onto bottom of prepared pan. Pour condensed milk over dough. Top with layers of chocolate, nuts, coconut and bacon; drizzle with caramel sauce.
Bake 25 min. or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting into bars.
Yes I know what you mean………..chocolate is a no no for we cats AND dogs as well and for any human who is trying to lose weight but GOSH, chocolate is also important because it’s a mood-enhancer and SO DARN YUMMY (for humans of course). Anyway it’s a dy-no-mite dessert/snack.
That’s what I say!!!!!
Give these a try and make your tummy happy…………………….
