Beer, bacon, candy. These are a few of my favorite things.

This recipe looks SUPER easy!

From Thrillist.com:

  1. COOK BACON. Preheat oven to 375℉. Place 1 pound of thick-cut bacon in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crispy, about 20 minutes.
  2. MAKE THE GLAZE. Combine 3/4 cup lager (1/2 bottle), 1 cup pure maple syrup, 2 tablespoons black pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan.
  3. REDUCE THE GLAZE. Bring the glaze to a simmer over medium heat, and cook, stirring often, until the liquid is reduced by half and looks thicker than syrup, about 20 minutes.
  4. BRUSH IT ON. Bring the glaze to a simmer over medium heat, and cook, stirring often, until the liquid is reduced by half and looks thicker than syrup, about 20 minutes.
  5. COOL THE BACON. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes or until glaze hardens.

The finished product should look something like this:
