About Bacon Molasses Brussel Sprouts

When I was kid, my mom would make these candy Brussels sprouts using maple syrup and brown sugar for the holidays, and I loved them.

My first cook your self Thanksgiving, I went to make them and found out I was all out of maple syrup, and I loved it in a small town where the store was closed. So I had to use what I had on hand, molasses, which turned out so good. I never looked back.
