8 strips of crispy bacon
18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
one 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
dash of salt
1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts
1 and 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Cook the bacon. Once the bacon is cooked, please cool the strips in the fridge for about an hour.Make sure you remove as much of the grease as possible from the strips.
In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in nuts and vanilla. Spread a thin layer of fudge into an 8 or 9 inch square pan lined with wax paper. Layer four pieces of bacon. Spread another layer of fudge. Layer four more pieces of bacon the opposite way. Chill 2 hours until or until firm. Turn fudge onto cutting board, peel off paper and cut into squares.
