To Die For Maple Bacon Crack!

Sweet, salty, and crunchy and made in under 1 hour.  My favorite type of recipe!  I made this recipe for my co-workers about a year ago and it has been talked about ever since then!  Seriously, this crack has a reputation!!

So I finally gave in and made it again.  And honestly, it was so easy, I don’t know why I was hesitating to make it again!

Maple bacon crack is a take-off on the old favorite Christmas Crack.  That recipe is all over Pinterest so I won’t bother to link to it here.  I found this Maple Bacon Crack recipe on Pinterest as well by Hayley Parker, the Domestic Rebel.

Let’s get right down to it, shall we?  This recipe has only 4 ingredients and you may even have them in your household right now.


  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1 pkg crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.  Unroll crescent dough in one sheet as well as you can, pinching the seams and spreading out on the pan.  Prick the dough with a fork and set aside.  I forgot to prick the dough below and my crack turned out fine.


Cook your bacon.  I chose to cook mine in the oven at 350 degrees until it was cooked but not crispy.  You will be baking it again so you don’t want to overcook it now.

IMG_2930Drizzle 1/4 cup of the maple syrup over the crescent roll dough.  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the brown sugar.  Tear the bacon into pieces and put on top.  Put the rest of the maple syrup and brown sugar on top of the bacon.

IMG_2932Bake for around 25 minutes until it is bubbling and caramelized.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Break into pieces and enjoy at room temperature or slightly warmed.
