- In my hand I'm holding candy and bacon. What? That's right, you heard me right. So easy, so simple, that's the crazy part, so simple and so delicious. Alright, let's get started. This right here is the sexiest and bestest bacon you'll ever have, and it's so easy, anyone can do it. As you can see you only need four little things, one, two, three, four. So, first thing you gotta do, take some oil, layer the bottom of the roasting pan, this will help the sugar, when it caramelizes on the bacon not let the bacon get stuck onto the tin foil, so you're not eating actual tin foil and metal, because that's nasty, and it's not edible. Now, bacon time, layer the bacon out, even strips, do not let them overlap. They can be touching and adjacent to each other just not fully overlapped, okay? So you're gonna lay it out in the pan, you can do this while the oven is preheating. Then once every inch is covered in the pan, set your bacon aside, and there you have it. So, best part now, sugar, so sweet, hmm. Then, you're gonna season each piece of bacon individually the amount of sugar that you put really depends on how sweet you want your bacon. As you're seasoning the bacon with the sugar, you wanna make sure you evenly distribute the sugar all along the bacon, so that each part is evenly coated. Like I said, just sprinkle high, and make it rain sugar, like this. Once all that glorious flower dust of sugar is all over the bacon, as you can see here, what we're gonna do, we're gonna bake this, in an oven, so it just becomes nice and carameliz-y and glorious. Bacon, ready! Candied beacon, I'm so excited to eat it. Okay so first you're gonna go ooh, ah. Okay, so first you're gonna look at it, and just stare lovingly into its soul. Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you say my bacon complete? Doesn't get better than this, let's eat it.
