Spicy Candied Bacon

Bacon. Candied. Spicy. Crunchy from caramelized sugar. Spicy from the chili powder. Salty. Sweet. Droool. You must make these. They are similar to Bacon CRACK-ers. Which are also amazing. So good. I could eat a whole batch, all by myself. Just. As. Is.

I have used them to top a salad, so if that makes you feel better you should do that. Because that is also so so good.

1 pound Bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne, Hatch Green Chile powder, or Thai ground chilies
Black pepper, optional
