Bacon Desserts: 5 Must-Try Sweet Treats
Bacon desserts might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the delicious cured meat favourite, but trust us when we tell you that there is a taste experience awaiting when you get a little more adventurous.
Sure, there are many savoury meals that would be incomplete without the smoky goodness of bacon (just imagine breakfast without Woody’s? It just wouldn’t be the same), but there are some sweet treats that you should whip up and indulge in, too. Bacon desserts are here to stay!
Here’s Our Top 5 Bacon Desserts:
1. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate chips cookies have been popular treats for decades, but even classics need to be reinvented from time to time. Our recommendation? Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies, naturally. The addition of Woody’s Premium Cut Diced Bacon gives these decadent cookies a welcome saltiness that doesn’t overpower the overall moreishness. The kid in you will love them!
2. Salted Maple Bacon Truffles
Salted caramel has become a sweet tooth’s favourite combo, but we think salted maple is the tasty trend waiting to take off. But to sweeten the deal a little more, we believe that adding some chocolate and bacon to the mix will take it to the next level. Foodie twins Jo and Sue have concocted an easy-to-follow Salted Maple Bacon Truffle recipe, so stock up in the ingredients (Woody’s Bacon being the secret weapon, of course) and get cooking!
3. Bacon Praline and Chocolate Ice Cream
Well, they say, “Go big or go home”, so this is why we are starting our list with this bold and flavourful dessert. Essentially, it calls for whipping up a bacon caramel that will be served with the ice, so it is pretty simple to whip up. We have a feeling Bacon Praline and Chocolate Ice Cream will be your new favourite dessert.
4. Caramel Bacon Sauce
For something a little more versatile and delicious, of course, we suggest you whip up a batch of caramel bacon sauce – yes, you read that correctly. Drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, a stack of pancakes or spoon it right into your mouth: you decide! It’s surprisingly easy to recreate yourself and won’t take you that long either.

If ever there was a recipe that needed a warning sign, it would be this one. These decadent cupcakes are incredibly addictive and will leave you and your family wanting more of this bacon dessert.
