Bacon Makes Dessert Better: Peanut Butter Brittle and Maple Pecan Ice Cream
|Bringing home the Sir Francis Bacon.|
My Achilles' heel is particularly, and often, pierced in Hedy Goldsmith's pastry station at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, where fatty slabs become confectionery c... well... you can fill in the alliterative blank.
|Candied bacon-studded maple ice cream with pecans? Yes, please.|
The offending product is Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Brittle. First, you'll get smoke. A lot of it. Crunch some more, and warm brown sugar sweetness floods your mouth. To finish, nuts and butter.
Recently written up by the New York Times, it will get your dentist's panties in a bunch but is worth every last finger wave.
Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Brittle, 3 oz. box, 3 boxes per order ($17.95) or 8 oz. box ($15.95) available for purchase online.
