Beer and Bacon Toffee Sundaes

1/2 c. diced bacon (about 4 pieces)

1 c. light brown sugar

1/2 light corn syrup

Anything with beer, bacon and sugar sounds good to me!

1/2 c. stout beer 

4 TBLSP butter 

1/2 c. heavy cream

2 pints vanilla ice cream

1 c. pecans, toasted and chopped 

Sea salt for sprinkling

POUt the bacon in a medium sauce pan over medium heat and cook, stirring until very crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels, reserving the fat in pan. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, beer, butter, heavy cream and a pinch or salt. Bring to boo, them reduce heat to medium low and simmer until slightly thickened, 6 - 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. Scoop ice cream into bowls and spoon toffee sauce over ice cream and top with bacon, pecans and sea salt. Serves 8.
