Mmm, Bacon Brittle!

The other day, I had the pleasure of dining at Nopa with Edrabbit, Violet Blue (NSFW), and JNA. Ed and I are lucky enough to live just a few blocks away from this place, which has amazing food & drink, friendly (and beautiful!) staff, and a great atmosphere. When it got to be dessert time, I had one look at the menu and knew what I had to get: the honey skillet bread, whiskey-praline ice cream, and bacon brittle. The bacon brittle was really the standout here. Many people thought my pecan-bacon lace cookies were bacon brittle. No, THIS is bacon brittle:

They did it right. Thick and sticky but still crisp–just like peanut brittle–but chockablock with delightfully crispy bacon bits instead of nuts. This stuff was perfect– and after it’d melted in the ice cream a bit, it got even better! Now I want to try my hand at it! And also go back to Nopa again while this is still on the menu. Next time, I’ll save more room for dessert. Mmm…
