How To Make Bacon ‘Pig’ Candy

Bacon CandyCali Lewis and I love bacon.  One evening we decided to make a ton of bacon recipes.  One of our favorites turned out to be Bacon Candy.  This recipe was originally published from Jill Conner Browne’s cookbook, The Sweet Potato Queens’ Big-Ass Cookbook.  I have made this recipe a few times and each time I make it, it’s a huge hit!!  THANK YOU JILL!!!

Bacon Candy, or Pig Candy is a very simple recipe.  It’s pretty hard to make a mistake with this one.  Just be sure to keep an eye on it in the oven so you don’t overcook it.


  • Bacon (several strips)
  • Dark Brown Sugar (enough to coat strips of bacon)


  1. Coat uncooked bacon in some dark brown sugar.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
