Ingredients

Maple Bacon Caramel

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp. maple extract
  • 8 slices Smithfield Bacon Cherrywood Smoked Thick Cut chopped

Sugar Cookie Dip

  • 1 1/2 cups dry sugar cookie mix
  • 12 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 3 T. heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 T. powdered sugar
  • Pretzels for dipping

Instructions

Maple Bacon Caramel

  • Using a pair of clean scissors or knife, cut the 8 pieces of bacon down the center of the strips of bacon and then across the strips into a large frypan.
  • Place over medium heat and cook until the bacon becomes golden brown but still chewy.
  • Scoop the pieces of bacon out with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel lined plate.
  • In a medium saucepan, add in the butter, both brown and granulated sugar, maple syrup, and egg. Stir to combine.
  • Place over medium heat and let it come up to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes while stirring constantly. It will bubble up and look somewhat foamy and then eventually go back down.
  • Remove from the heat and let cool for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the bacon and maple extract and stir until incorporated.

Sugar Cookie Dip

  • Add in the dry sugar cookie mix, cream cheese, heavy cream, and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl. Beat on medium until incorporated.
  • Spread the sugar cookie dip into a shallow dish. (Something similar to a 7x11 dish.) Be sure to get the dip to all of the edges and corners.
  • Drizzle the maple bacon caramel on top of the dip. Be sure to drizzle it all over to help it cover all of the dip without having to spread it.
  • Serve with pretzels or graham crackers.

Notes

If you can find sugar cookie coffee cream, substitute that for the heavy cream and powdered sugar. It's perfect for this dip!
