This creation deserves to go directly into the OMG – I WANT IT category.

Bacon Moon Pies. Three words that should make your taste buds stand up and shout. Rob, a confectioner from Northern California has come up with what may be one of the greatest bacon desserts of all time.

Rob says in order to create these amazing treats he must “render the fat out of the bacon and use it in place of butter fat in the shortbread and in the caramel so the flavor is extra intense.” This isn’t any ordinary shortbread, this is traditional Scottish shortbread made with bacon fat, stone ground rice flour, and bacon cracklin. Between two pieces of the shortbread Rob places “a marshmallow made with Vermont maple syrup and Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon, surrounding a bacon fat and bacon cracklin caramel.”

And as if that’s not enough, “the whole thing is coated with a thick layer of my favorite blended chocolate, Michel Cluizel’s 72% dark.”

Wow. Heaven in the shape of a moon pie.
