Well, here I go again… in addition to signing up for the Spiked Challenge using Irish Cream a couple days ago, I also signed up for a challenge where the ingredient was beer. This challenge is sponsored by Julie @ WhiteLightsOnWednesday and Jenn @ FourMarrsandOneVenus. Another good ingredient choice!

Recipe Source: Co-worker
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 T sea salt
- 3 1/2 cups pecan halves
- 4 slices of bacon diced
- 1/3 cup Blue Moon beer
- Fresh ground black pepper to taste (I used about 1 tsp)
Preheat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with foil that has been sprayed with PAM. In a saucepan combine all ingredients except for pecans – let it come to boil and boil for 10 minutes stirring often. Add in pecans and then spread on cookie sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes. Remove from oven and spread onto another piece of foil, let cool and break up pieces if necessary. Serve at room temperature.
Can I just say by the end of the night, there was not a pecan left! This is a great snack and hope you will give it a try!
