1 hr
1 baking sheet


  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 sticks (2 cups) unsalted butter 
  • 1/3 cup water 
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 
  • Pinch kosher salt 
  • 1 pound dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 pound Black Forest bacon
  • Smoked sea salt, for sprinkling


Special equipment: a candy thermometer; a silicone baking mat

Combine the sugar, butter, water, vanilla and salt in a saucepot over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture reaches 295 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes.

Pour the toffee out onto a silicone baking mat and spread thin with an offset spatula. Allow to cool completely.

Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crispy. Pat dry with paper towels, then chop into small bits. Set aside.

Set aside 1/2 cup of the chocolate. Bring remaining chocolate into temper by heating it slowly in the microwave until warm to the touch. Stir in the reserved chocolate to cool and temper.

Spread a layer of tempered chocolate onto the surface of the cooled toffee. Sprinkle bacon bits and some smoked sea salt over the top. Allow to cool and set completely.

Flip the toffee over and repeat on the reverse side. When set, cut the bacon toffee into pieces.
