Ingredients

  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Flavoring
  • 4 slices Bacon cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips or Candy Coating

Instructions

  • Mix powdered sugar, maple flavoring and butter in a bowl until mixed well.
  • Crumble in 3 pieces of bacon and mix in well.
  • Chill the maple bacon mixture in the refrigerator until firm enough to shape into balls, I chilled mine about 1 hour.
  • Once the maple mixture has been chilled long enough. Scoop and shape into balls and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Freeze the balls until firm. It took about an hour to freeze mine and then some just started to melt as I was dipping them so a little longer time in the freezer is better.
  • Once balls are frozen firm, melt the chocolate chips or candy coating over low heat on the stovetop and dip the frozen maple balls to coat them in chocolate. I have found a fork works well for this task.
  • Once dipped place the balls back onto the wax paper lined cookie sheet to set. I added a small piece of bacon to the top of each one of the balls while the chocolate was still not set for decoration.
  • Once the chocolate is firm and set. Place the candy in a tightly covered container and store in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!
