Never fear however, we've found a great idea from epic food bloggers Mary-Lynn and George from StainedAprons&StrongDrinks; Beer Bacon Nuts!!!


1/3 cup beer
8 slices of UNCOOKED bacon (I know, it sounds weird, just go with it)
1 tablespoon salt
1 pinch cayenne
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 cup peanuts
1 cup corn nuts

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with foil. Slice the uncooked bacon.
2. Boil the beer, the sliced uncooked bacon pieces, brown sugar, salt, and cayenne. Boil until the beer evaporates and it’s a bit syrup-y, about 8 minutes.
3. Mix in the nuts and spread on the foil-lined baking sheet. Pop the pan in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. We baked it until the bacon’s texture was a little crispy.
4. Afterwards, divvy up the mixture up into cupcake cups. The yield depends on how much you want to fill the cups. To fill the cups generously to the top (like we did), you’ll yield about 16 cups.
