Bacon lovers rejoice with this addictive snack in all its sweet and spicy glory.  This quick and easy recipe will have you begging for more with its salty crunchiness!

  • 4 slabs thick cut bacon, apple-wood smoked
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ghost Pepper Salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F

  2. On a cookie sheet, lay the slices of bacon flat. Pour honey over the bacon, add brown sugar, and dust with cayenne pepper.

  3. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bacon is cooked through and begins to caramelize on the edges.

  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add sugar and almonds. Cook over medium high heat until sugar begins to turn an auburn color. Stir constantly and pull off heat.

  5. Pour the candied almonds onto a nonstick mat or surface sprinkle with ghost pepper salt and allow to cool.

  6. Chop the cooled candied almonds even more and spread onto the bacon generously.

  7. Bake for an additional minute to allow the almonds to adhere to bacon. Allow to cool and enjoy!
