When your recipe starts with one pound of bacon, how can you go wrong?
Now let’s make it candy and bam! you have Bacon Crack.
Now, RV tailgating snacks need to be easy.
We prefer things that we can fix ahead of time so that we can enjoy all of our tailgating time. Because wouldn’t you rather be out enjoying your family, friends, and football than in the RV kitchen making your food?
Bacon Crack Snacks are a perfect make ahead snack. Make this on Friday morning before you head out in the RV and snack on it Friday night and Saturday.
If they make it that long.
How long do you expect one pound of bacon, mixed with the saltiness of the crackers and the smooth taste of caramel to last? Seriously, this stuff is good and it fits our criteria for easy to make!
This recipe debuted at the tailgating as part of our Homecoming Tailgate.
It was a perfect snack to hold us over until dinner of fried chicken sliders.

- 1 1/4 c Butter, Unsalted
