Tonight is the 3rd annual bacon party.  I usually go all out but I had the flu this week so I only made a few things.  In honor of Christmas I decided to make candy canes.  But not just any candy canes but Maple Bacon candy canes.  I was going to have a red stripe but when I went to add the red food coloring the Bottle was empty. Boo!  So these have 1/2 a pound of bacon in all.

Sorry the picture isn't the best.  I'll give an update on how they went at the party.

Thanks for looking!

And I am waiting for the update....and, if the reviews are good...perhaps recipes?  My bf thinks bacon is a food group along with sausage.  I too want details!

I am interested in personal swaps...and kittens...and rocks.  Weird huh?

I second the demand request for maple bacon recipes and, more importantly, the story of the Origin of Bacon Party!

I finally have a wist!

The party was rockin! The canes were awesome! Well they tasted awesome.  It is very damp here and they got sticky on the outside. Any suggestions on how to fix that? 

I got the recipe here: http://www.ehow.com/how_2121787_make-candy-canes.html But instead of peppermint I used 1/2 tsp maple flavoring and 1/4 tsp vanilla.  I cooked about a half of pound of bacon REALLY crispy.  I let it "drip dry" and then I put it in my Cuisinart.  I run it until the bacon turns into little specks or what I call "bacon freckles." I add the freckles when I added the flavoring.  The directions are kind of vague at the end.  I greased a cookie sheet and a spatula with bacon grease and poured the liquid candy onto it.  I then started folding the candy with the spatula until it was cool enough to handle.  I then bacon greased my hands and started pulling the candy until it was holding up its shape.  I then formed the canes and let them fully cool on another bacon greased cookie sheet. Then voila bacon canes!

As for the bacon party, my friend loves bacon so much she had a bacon themed potluck for her birthday.  It quickly turned into rockin' bacon fiesta.  Gluttony to the max.  I try to one up myself each year but this year I had the flu earlier in the week and cooking was out of the question.  So I made these maple bacon candy canes, maple bacon fudge (found in this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283637.0;topicseen ) and bacon vodka.  (I made the vodka in August and squirreled it away.)  I have made bacon caramels,  bacon candy corn, bacon ice cream, vanilla bacon marshmallows, and the list goes on...  If you want to come next year, I would love to have ya but I am in Northern California. So if you are up here bring on the bacon!
