Pig Candy!

The best holiday finger food ever. Or just the best year-round finger food ever. It’s always the first thing 100% gone, guaranteed.

Pig Candy

  • 1 package uncured bacon
  • Coconut sugar
  • Cayenne pepper

Mix coconut sugar and cayenne pepper (we don’t measure, so more = spicier, obvi) in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Coat both sides of each slice of bacon in the mixture, and lay flat on an aluminum foil covered cookie sheet. Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and use a fork to roll-up and stick with a toothpick, ta-da! You must roll-up the bacon promptly after being removed from the over, or else it will adhere itself to the foil, and that’s sad.

When Seth first learned of this, we used regular brown refined sugar, but we changed our sugar to be more paleo-friendly (still, we rarely eat any sugar anymore). We always take it to parties, and it is always the first thing to disappear, and we usually make double batches 🙂photo 1 (18)photo 2 (19)
