I teamed up with local company Burgers’ Smokehouse to bring you this sweet and savory recipe that’s perfect for all the upcoming holiday gatherings! Take it to work and impress your coworkers, bring as dessert for Friendsgiving, or package and give out as gifts to loved ones! Everyone will love this recipe, I promise.
Let’s talk about the bacon I used in this recipe. It’s from Burgers’ Smokehouse which is based out of California, MO (just outside Jefferson City). Burgers’ began back in 1927 as a business selling cured hams. Today Burgers’ is still owned and operated by the third and fourth generations of the Burger family and they’ve expanded their business to include many more meats, cheeses, and desserts. And while you can order everything directly from their website, if you really need some bacon immediately (because you just can’t wait to try this recipe) you can find it at Schnucks!
Now the reason Burgers’ bacon is so delicious and different than the regular bacon you grab at the store is because it’s dry cured and naturally wood smoked with no water added. That’s the secret! Most bacon is cured in a brine, but because Burgers’ is dry cured you’ll get less shrinkage (more meat!!) when cooking and a richer flavor. They have a few different flavors, I used the original hickory smoked this time, but I bet the maple hickory smoked would be really good too!
Now on to the recipe! There are a few steps for this bacon toffee recipe, but I promise you they are all very simple and anyone can make this! My biggest tip is to make sure you line your entire pan with foil and spray with cooking spray, it will make clean up so much easier!
- 16 graham crackers
- 1 1/2 cups butter
- 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
- 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon
- Cook bacon slowly over low heat, turning while frying. Remove from pan and drain onto a paper towel. Once cooled chop into pieces.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line the entire pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. I used a half sheet which is 13×18.
- Cover pan with graham crackers. Break some in pieces to fill in empty spaces.
- Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and simmer for 2 minutes while constantly stirring.
- Pour brown sugar and butter mixture over graham crackers and spread evenly.
- Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven and top with chocolate chips.
- Let the chocolate set for about 2 minutes so it begins to melt. Then spread evenly across the pan.
- Sprinkle chopped bacon on top of the chocolate.
- Let harden. You can also put the pan in the fridge to speed up this process.
- Break toffee apart and enjoy!
