University of Que Pig Candy (Candied Maple Bacon)
If you've never had Pig Candy, you are in for a life changing experience with this recipe. We LOVE eating it by itself, dipping it in chocolate for gifts, using it as a tasty burger topping, or putting it in ice cream. You will soon find that you have a ton of other ways to use it and that the little bit of work it takes to make it will be oh so worth it!
