To Make Bourbon Candied Bacon Bites

Mix brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla extract, and crushed red pepper in a bowl.

Cut the bacon into squares and toss it in the bourbon mixture. Mix well to coat.

Baking Bourbon Candied Bacon Bites - AKA Pig Candy

Place the bacon squares on the wire racks. Bake for 40-60 minutes, until the bacon is brick-red and crisp. The exact cooking time depends on the thickness of your bacon.

The bacon will still be a little flexible while it’s hot, but should quickly cool into dry pieces that are crisp on both sides. You can take a piece out of the oven and cool it to test for doneness.
