Candied bacon strips are a favorite of CBCI chefs. They can be made ahead of the big game, and they are a perfect snack to walk around with. Follow the recipe below for this treat.

Shopping List:

  2. Maple syrup
  3. Brown sugar
  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with a wire rack.
  2. Line your thick-cut bacon on a wire rack, brush with maple syrup, and top with a dusting of light brown sugar.
  3. Place in a 350 degree F oven for 10 minutes. After that remove the bacon and flip each slice. Coat the other side with maple syrup and brown sugar.

Pretzels & Cheese

Pretzels and cheese are a great snack for the big game. This is an easy one for the host because you can purchase already made pretzels and warm them up in time for the game. Our trick here at CBCI is adding Mustketch to the cheese dipping sauce. Click here for the sauce recipe.
