Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Chocolate-Covered Bacon

 

Okay, so do I really need to explain why Chocolate Covered Bacon is awesome? I hope not, but I’ll do it anyway. Because the crunchy, fatty, salty bacon meshes so well with sweet milk chocolate.

Sweet + Salty + Crunchy = Heaven on Earth.

Making chocolate-covered bacon at home is easy but it’s pretty messy. And who cares about the mess to clean up when you’ve got chocolate-covered bacon to snack on.

I love hearing those words strung together: Chocolate. Covered. Bacon.

Chocolate Covered Bacon Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Bacon
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Sea salt

Directions: 

  1. Cook the bacon according to the directions on the package. I found throwing the bacon in the oven to be the easiest way to cook it so that’s what I did. I used 5 strips of bacon and laid them on a shallow pan.
  2. Once the bacon is cooked, pat dry with paper towels. Be careful to not snap the crispy ends of the bacon!
  3. Set up an area for you to lay out the bacon and drizzle with chocolate. I used a cooling rack with wax paper on top. Why? Mainly because I ran out of other containers and was in a hurry to get chocolate on the bacon.
  4. Heat up the chocolate chips in a bowl that’s deep enough to hold the chocolate/stir the melted chocolate/dip the bacon in the microwave. Be careful to not burn/dry out the chocolate! Believe me, you’re better off turning the microwave off sooner than you think.
  5. Using a fork, drizzle chocolate onto the bacon for a light chocolatey taste. Or, dip the bacon into the melted chocolate, shake off any excess, and lay on the wax paper. During this step, add a little sea salt for extra texture and flavor.
  6. Place the bacon in the fridge so the chocolate hardens. Once the chocolate is hardened, serve and enjoy!
