Today I teamed up with some amazing bloggers in honor of an exciting celebration: David from Spiced Blog and his wife Laura are expecting a baby boy! In honor of the baby on the way, Chris from Shared Appetite organized a super manly baby shower to help send David and Laura some delicious blogger love before their little sous chef arrives. Everyone made some delicious things – you can see the full list down below!

I love following David’s blog and seeing how guys can kill it as food bloggers too! I was also super excited to come up with a “manly” treat to share for this virtual baby shower.

This Bacon Toffee is easy, delicious, and super addictive! Bacon adds a smoky, salty twist to a classic holiday favorite. Only five ingredients!My first thought was bacon. Obviously, I had to put bacon into something. Probably something chocolatey, if the success of my Bacon Caramel Brownies gave any indication of how much people like chocolate and bacon together.

I ended up settling on a recipe that’s super easy and always a crowd pleaser: toffee. This isn’t regular English toffee, but more similar to the “crack toffee” that’s so often made around the holidays. It has a layer of Saltines on the bottom, topped with a brown sugar butter mixture that turns into crunchy toffee, chocolate spread on top, and of course – tons of bacon bits!

Only five ingredients!I baked and drained the bacon and then chopped it up into little bits so you’d get some in each bite.  I sprinkled half the bits below the caramel mixture and half the bits on top of the chocolate – there’s more bacon hidden in these bars then meets the eye!

The smoky bacon and the crunchy, saltiness of the saltines paired with the sweetness of the toffee and the chocolate is an irresistible combination. The bacon adds a little manliness, but these bacon toffee shards are good enough to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.

If you want to enhance the salty sweet even more, sprinkle a bit of fleur de sel on top of the chocolate along with the bacon. I wish I had! I love the immediate hit of salt that sprinkling a little fleur de sel on top of a sweet dessert adds. It really balances out the sweetness of the chocolate and the toffee.

After you whip up this easy toffee, take a stroll around the rest of the baby shower and check out all of these delicious recipes from some of my blogger friends, listed below the recipe! Enjoy :)

  23. Can these be made ahead and stored? I worry that the cracker
    might get soggy.

    • Hi Kate. How long did you want to store it for? I kept the toffee for a few days and it held up well! Just make sure it’s stored tightly sealed in an airtight container.

  24. Ermagherd this toffee sounds AMAZING!!! Bacon + Chocolate = manly flavor explosion! Thanks so much for participating in the shower and for bringing such an AWESOME recipe to the party!
