Chocolate Covered Bacon is a salty sweet dessert that is made with only 2 ingredients. Mix up your chocolate and add fun toppings for a truly gourmet treat!
, about 1 pound, thick sliced
chocolate of choice
chopped nuts or candy (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and place an oven safe cooling rack on top.
Line bacon on the cooling rack and bake for 12 to 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your bacon. Flip once about halfway through and cook until deep golden brown and crisp.
While bacon is cooling, break up chocolate into a bowl and microwave on 10 second intervals until the chocolate is beginning to melt. Stir to melt the chocolate completely.
Dab off any leftover grease from the bacon with a paper towel then dip one end into the chocolate. Use a spoon to coat the bacon slice a little more than halfway up on both sides.
Place coated bacon on wax paper or parchment paper. Continue until all the bacon is coated.
Sprinkle each slice with about 1 teaspoon of chopped toppings if using and transfer the wax paper to the fridge, keeping it flat to let the chocolate set. About 1 hour.
Enjoy and keep bacon stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
