Holiday Bark Series: Whiskey Marshmallow and Caramel Bacon Bark

I know long name, but trying to be creative a 1:30AM is not working out too well – but at least the bark did.

Whiskey Marshmallow and Caramel Bacon Bark

Full disclosure: This one won’t ship as well as the other bark recipes, but trust me when I say it will be well received! It’s hard to go wrong with whiskey, caramel, marshmallow and bacon! Isn’t bacon like the great enhancer? Yes, I think so.

Moving on. . .

So in keeping with the fuss-free theme of the Holiday Bark Series, I took a shortcut with the marshmallows and used store bought mini marshmallows instead of pulling out the thermometer for a homemade brew. Guess what? It turned out just fine when I added whiskey to the slightly melted marshmallow.

As for the bacon, well if you know me, then you know I love a good sweet and spicy bacon crumble (. . . . remember these cupcakes)? And that’s sweet and spicy as in sugar coated and kicked up with cayenne and black pepper.

Last note before I send you over to Endless Simmer for the recipe, as many of you know I usually make my bark with dark chocolate, but for this recipe I wanted a more neutral chocolate so that the whiskey would come through nice and strong. With that I used a semi sweet vs. a dark chocolate.

Now hit the jump for the recipe.

    Bacon may be eaten smoked, boiled, fried, baked, or grilled, or used as a minor ingredient to flavour dishes. Bacon is also used for barding and larding roasts, especially game, e.g. venison, pheasant. The word is derived from the Old High German bacho, meaning “buttock”, “ham” or “side of bacon”, and cognate with the Old French bacon.`-“-

    This looks amazing, but the link still doesn’t work. Also, when searched in google under the supposed web address, it comes up as ‘this site may be hacked’. Please check the link and/or site.
