Chocolate Covered Bacon

Chocolate Covered Bacon

Serves: 6 to 8

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1 pound sliced applewood-smoked bacon
1 (10-ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a plate with paper towels and two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place bacon on one of the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the bacon is crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to the prepared plate.

In a large bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate over medium heat. While the chocolate is melting, place a wire rack over the second prepared baking sheet.

When the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl from the double boiler. Dip both sides of each strip of bacon in the melted chocolate. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and let sit at room temperature until fully set, 20 to 30 minutes. Serve.

About the recipe

Bacon and chocolate are a surprisingly good pairing. The saltiness of the bacon enhances the sweetness in the chocolate, leading to a sweet-salty dream snack.
