    So, last weekend I decided to try my hand at candy making. Here's what happened:

    First ingredient - BACON :pig:

    Stay with me here - there is a method to this madness. The recipe is for Maple Bourbon Bacon Brittle.

    First step is the bacon gets brushed with some Jim Beam and sprinkled with brown sugar

    In the oven for about 20 minutes

    Let it cool for a while so the sugar forms a nice coating

    Bacon wrapped candy.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Meanwhile, toast some pecans

    Chop it all up into bite sized pieces when the bacon has cooled

    You do realize that would mean you'd have cum in your mouth, right?

    Now - here is where you need to know what you're doing, because once it gets to the right temperature you have a very limited amount of time to get the rest of the ingredients incorporated and have it all come together right.

    Unfortunately, I had no fucking idea what I was doing the first time I tried this :neesie:

    I forgot the butter and I panicked and tried to get it in there at the last minute and dear LORD... :facepalm:
