Making this pig candy as a fun party snack. Thin or thick slices of bacon coated in brown sugar and then baked to perfection. It’s sticky, sweet and salty. Not only is it an unexpected treat, it’s also one of the most addictive appetizers ever. There’s no real secret to making candied bacon. It’s just brown sugar and pepper added to bacon and baked. It’s best to bake the bacon in the oven to avoid curling.
