  • 1 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
  • For the candied bacon:
  • 5 pieces thick cut bacon
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cover the bottom of a baking sheet with foil and place a cookie cooling rack on top. (This allows the bacon grease to drain and not make a mess).
  • Spray rack well with a non-stick spray and place bacon strips on rack.
  • In a microwave safe container, heat the brown sugar and maple syrup. Brush warm mixture on top of the bacon strips.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until bacon is brown and a little crispy. Let cool.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until mixture is smooth and creamy. Add in brown sugar and powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Stir in maple syrup until well mixed.
  • Crumble 4 pieces of the candied bacon and fold into the dip. Crumble the last piece of bacon and sprinkle on top of the mixture.
  • Serve immediately with apple slices, graham crackers, or mini Eggo waffles or chill until ready to eat.
