Did I have you at bacon? Haha! OMG! You guys, I think I am addicted to these things! For real, these are so freaking good. The combination of the salty bacon and crackers, the sweetness from the brown sugar and a little bit of spice from the jalapenos…these Candied Bacon Jalapeno Crackers are like crack.
These are a delicious snack or a great appetizer to serve family or guests and can be ready in under half an hour. Not only are they super easy to make, they are also super easy to eat.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR CANDIED BACON JALAPENO CRACKERS
These are really best consumed fresh. The crackers get soggy and they just do not hold up well left-over.
I love these just as they are, but you can get creative and try some different items like red pepper flakes, black pepper, etc.
Use bacon that is on the thinner side. Bacon that is too thick will take too long to cook.
Instead of sprinkling the brown sugar onto the bacon, you could, alternatively, pour brown sugar onto a plate and then press the bacon into it to coat. I much prefer this method.
- Crackers – I use Town House Original because they do not contain high fructose corn syrup.
- Dark brown sugar
