Brown Butter Cereal Bars with Candied Bacon

We love bacon! Bacon is savory and filling but can also be used in sweet recipes! That is where this Brown Butter Cereal Bars recipe fits in today- totally sweet with a hint of savory. I didn't create this recipe but I have made it and it is good! What do you like to do with bacon beside cooking up a pound and eating it with the family for breakfast? Oh and did you know that March 7 is National Cereal Day? Make sure you make some tasty cereal recipes for the family to celebrate! 


sweet bacon recipes



Brown Butter Cereal Bars with Candied Bacon 

Ingredients

1 lb bacon
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter (no substitutions)
1 1/2 bags (10 oz each) marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
6 cups rice Chex® cereal
6 cups corn Chex® cereal

Directions


Heat oven to 400°F. Line broiler pan or 10x15 pan with parchment paper or foil. Place bacon on pan in single layer. Sprinkle with half of the brown sugar. Bake 9 to 11 minutes until the sugar is dissolved. Turn bacon over, sprinkle with remaining brown sugar. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp and sugar is melted. Set aside to cool, finely chop.

In 5 quart dutch oven melt butter on medium heat, stirring frequently until it turns golden brown and begins to smell nutty. Add in marshmallows, stir until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, salt and finely chopped candied bacon until well incorporate. Gently stir in cereal, until well coated. 


Spoon into 13x9-inch glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Wet your hands slightly with water and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut into small (1-inch) bite sized pieces.

I would like to get the Callahan Auto Parts shirt. My husband loves that movie, and his old shirt is torn. He wants a new one, so I'd love to get him one.

I'm now following you on Twitter and FB. And as for the shirt, I'd have to say "Abe Froman, Sausage King of Chicago" was my favorite. I loved Ferris Bueller and being from Chicago it would be a tribute to both my favorite city and movie!
