- 1 to 2 tablespoons whole milk, at room temperature
- Bacon bits for garnish
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. Add the maple syrup and melted butter and whisk continuously until the mixture is wet, yet thick. Slowly add drops of the milk, whisking after each addition, until the mixture is pourable but still thick.
