  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels; set aside.
  2. Stir milk and unsweetened chocolate in a large saucepan over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is thoroughly combined, 2 to 3 minutes; stir in sugar all at once. Whisk mixture, trying to clean the sides of pan as much as possible.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer inserted into the middle of the fudge reads 236 to 238 degrees F (110 to 115 degrees C), or candy forms a soft ball when dripped into cold water. Remove from heat as soon as candy hits the correct temperature; stir in bacon.
  4. Place butter squares onto fudge mixture and pour vanilla extract over the top. Set aside with thermometer in the fudge; do not disturb pot until temperature has dropped to 110 to 115 degrees F (43 to 46 degrees C).
  5. While fudge is cooling, line an 8x8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil and coat with butter. When fudge has reached 110 to 115 degrees F, stir in butter and vanilla extract thoroughly into the fudge; pour fudge into prepared pan.
  6. Refrigerate fudge for 30 minutes, then score the fudge in desired piece sizes; return to refrigerator for 2 more hours. Cut into pieces to serve.

HELP!! I so so wanted to try this fudge. It sounded so yummy! I'm a fudge making newbie so it could have totally been something I did. Again, I followed the recipe exactly too. My sugar dissolve...

The concept is awesome and the flavor isn't too bad, but I also ended up with a grainy batch of sugary sand once I was done, and I have made more than my fair share of fudge. Even when using a ...

I followed this recipe exactly and the fudge turned out horrible. The sugar never completely dissolved so it had a grainy texture. Not sure if I did something wrong or if it's just the recipe.

We love this fudge! The saltiness of the bacon offsets the sweetness of the fudge and my family couldn't get enough of it. I only had regular bacon but had to make this, so I drizzled a little...
