Makes 8 Sundaes You'll Need:

  • 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 recipe Bacon Infused Caramel below
  • 2 cups chopped toasted pecans
  • 6 slices 1/2 lb. cooked bacon, chopped

Assemble sundaes by putting 2 scoops of ice cream in a bowl, add caramel, bacon pieces and nuts.  Serve immediately.

  • Bacon Infused Caramel
  • 1 C white granulated sugar
  • 5 T salted butter
  • 1 C Bacon Infused Cream *see below


  • Place sugar in a large saucepan with high sides, heat burner to medium high. Watch sugars melt and gently swish mixture so no sugar burns. (This will make your caramel taste bitter). When sugar is melted and lightly amber colored stir in butter until well mixed. Reduce heat to medium or medium low (depending on how 'hot' your stovetop is). Add bacon infused cream, stand back, the mixture will boil up. Stir until well incorporated, and continue to boil for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool.  Store at room temperature for 1 day, then after that, in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Bacon Infused Cream:
  • You’ll use 2 pieces of cooked bacon per 1 cup of cream.
  • Simmer fully cooked bacon pieces with heavy cream in a large saucepan for 5-10 minutes. Do not fully boil, just a slow simmer will do.  Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer.  Reserve cream to use in Bacon Sweet Corn Mac ‘n Cheese (recipe coming!), Bacon Infused Caramel Sauce or make your own bacon whipped cream!
