vincentvangonads asked: I've decided to make that amazing bacon caramel marshmallow bark for Christmas. Is it very time consuming? I don't even need to ask if its worth it because I'm sure it is.
Not very. I would say it took me about 2 hours, and that was while I was also making chocolate cake and vegetable stock. The tricky part is sorting out the order of operations, because there are many moving parts. I made the caramel first but then had to reheat it. Might have been better to make it when it was needed, which would mean:
- Make the bacon topping
- While it’s in the oven, melt the chocolate
- Spread the chocolate, freeze for 5 minutes, melt the marshmallows, add whiskey, spread the marshmallows, let it cool in fridge or countertop
- Make the caramel, spread the caramel
- Freeze for 5 minutes, spread second layer of chocolate, sprinkle with bacon
Finally: I used half the bacon and everything turned out dandy. There’s plenty of it on the finished bark. I didn’t reduce the egg white and spices in the bacon crumble recipe, though I did make less of the sugar wash (3 tbsp. sugar, 3 tbsp. water).
And yes, it’s definitely worth it. Happy Holidays!
