Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Hubby watched this on TV and his eyes lit up! He turned and said now THAT sounds good Ha Ha sugar fat bacon chocolate not to mention peanuts which gives him gout what's not to like??? but I'll will try it at least once have to have something really naughty once in awhile.. it sounds HMmmmmmmmmmmmmm SOOOOO GOOD

I will try this, since bacon is so popular now. And I'm sorry, I mean no offence when I say this, but the food police on food websites are getting to be too much! They see a recipe they know has to be fattening, high in cholesterol, etc., and then feel compelled to make us all aware of how terrible that recipe is, then rate it with a low rating when they wouldn't even dream of making it, let alone tasting it! Please don't! It's very annoying and it doesn't accomplish anything other than make you obnoxious! It's not so much WHAT you eat, as it is how MUCH you eat! Besides, Fast food is the real problem... If you must police, please go police the patrons at Fast Food restaurants. Thank you.

Can the real bacon pieces that you find in the salad dressing aisle be substituted?

They sure can! Enjoy!

I've made these several times and taken to barbeques and parties...they were a hit!!! The bacon flavor is NOT overpowering...a crowd FAVORITE!!!

I bet these taste great, but with high cholestrol, I bet they're a heart attack ready to happen.

so eat one and let us know!!

Sweet and savory and bacon and peanut butter---YUMMMMM!!
