Homemade Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Make This Chocolate-Covered Treat For Your Bacon-Obsessed Friends


There's a lot of love given to chocolate-covered strawberries and candied bacon, but why not combine the two ideas to create chocolate-covered bacon?

The odd-sounding dessert will intrigue family and friends, but don't worry. They will love the scrumptiously sweet and smokey edible gift.

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound thick cut bacon
  2. 12 ounces white chocolate candy melts, like Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers
  3. 12 ounces dark chocolate candy melts, like Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a half sheet pan fitted with a cooling rack. Bake in the oven until bacon is cooked (15 minutes for soft bacon, 20 minutes for crispy bacon). Let bacon cool on the pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
  2. Meanwhile set up a double boiler by heating a large saucepan filled with water over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer. Set a heat-proof bowl over the simmering water. Add white chocolate and stir with a rubber spatula occasionally until smooth and completely melted. Remove bowl and set aside. Add a second heat-proof bowl over the simmering water. Repeat process with dark chocolate
  3. Cover another baking sheet with parchment paper. Using tongs, carefully dip half the bacon into the melted white chocolate turning to coat all sides in chocolate. Transfer to the clean sheet of waiting parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining slices of bacon, dipping them in the melted dark chocolate. Reserve a few slices of bacon, crumble them, and sprinkle them atop the dipped bacon pieces. Let chocolate set at room temperature or refrigerate until chocolate is hard. Consume within a few days.

This one's great! - looks awesomely delicious! I have some bacon sitting in my fridge and some 100% chocolate sitting in my kitchen cabinet. I might make a variety of it for my paleo recipe collection(http://www.paleopancakesandmore.com/) . Surely it will be a lot healthier and yummier!

I'm making this now for the people at my husband's office... They've been working 6 twelve hour shifts a week for the past 4 months. They deserve something a little sinful :)  The only thing I did differently was that I used milk chocolate chips.

What the? Bacon does indeed made everything taste better. It kind makes sense since cooking with chocolate benefits with a little salt.
