Chocolate Covered Bacon

Chocolate covered bacon

Yes, yes I did.  I fried up some bacon, melted some chocolate and dipped the bacon in the chocolate.  Crazy?  Either it would be the worst thing ever or the best thing ever.  Best. Thing. Ever. Further proof the bacon does indeed make everything better.  The salty sweetness is actually quite delicious with a good dark chocolate.  And for a little fun on Valentine’s Day, which I have to spend apart from my sweetie, I shaped the bacon into hearts.  I was going to make my own chocolate coating with raw cacao, cocoa butter and rapadura but there was no cocoa butter to be found in my town.  So I settled for Enjoy Life chocolate chips which weren’t too bad.  It contains evaporated cane juice, chocolate liquor, and cocoa butter which wasn’t too far off from what I was going to use anyway.

Chocolate Covered Bacon
  • 1 lb bacon, nitrate free
  • 10 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is what I used)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

To make heart shaped bacon, cut in half and over lap like this:

Bake at 400F for about 12-15 mins.  You’ll want them crispy.  Remove from oven, drain fat and let cool enough to handle.
Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or small saucepan.
Dip bacon into chocolate and set on a wax paper lined tray.  Set in the fridge (or freezer) to let the chocolate set.
