Botched Bacon Bark

It’s food like this Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Whiskey Bacon Bark from The Kitchen Prep that reminds me why I don’t cook.

First of all, I rarely have more than three ingredients on hand, and that’s only if I’m counting tap water as an ingredient.

Secondly, I would never, ever, EVER in a million years think of pairing marshmallow with whiskey. I pair whiskey with ice cubes and a glass or, if I’m in a hurry, a simple brown paper bag. I pair marshmallows with campfires, into which I let the marshmallows fall to their fiery demise because (as I’ve mentioned) marshmallows are gross.

But thirdly, I don’t cook because if I did, I’d be tempted to make this recipe in spite of the first two points, and then I’d most likely fall in love with it and eat it for every meal until I had to move into our garage because I couldn’t fit through any of our doorways anymore.

I’m not sure what inspired CraftFail reader Wendy to try this particular variety of bark, but I’m glad she did because it led to this:
