Assemble the ingredients (listed at start of the supplies list)


First you need to cook all the bacon. I find the easier way is to bake it in the oven. To do this preheat the oven to 400F. Line two baking sheets with baking paper and the arrange the bacon slices.

Once ready put them in the oven with the timer on for 8 mins. When the timer goes off turn the sheets around and cook for a further 5-8mins.

Empty the contents of the saucepan into the prepared pan and then scatter the reserved chopped bacon over the top.


Once the fudge has cooled enough to put in the fridge, cover and chill until firm. This is generally a few hours, but I leave it overnight. Once firm, run a knife round the edge and tip out.
