DIRECTIONS

  • Grease or butter a large nonstick baking sheet.
  • In a medium heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water over medium heat.
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to a boil.
  • Attach a candy thermometer to the pan, increase the heat to high, and cook, without stirring, until the mixture reaches 290 degrees.
  • Immediately remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the butter, vanilla, baking soda, pecans and bacon bits.
  • Watch out, as the mixture will foam.
  • When the foam subsides, pour the hot mixture onto the prepared baking sheet as thinly as possible.
  • Do not use a spatula.
  • Cool at least 10 minutes before breaking into pieces.
  • Store in a covered container.
