Glitter, Glue and Gluttony Valentine’s Day: Chocolate Covered Bacon Recipe

Nothing says love like chocolate covered bacon!!! Here is the easy-peasy recipe that was featured in Glitter, Glue and Gluttony Valentine’s Day Part 2.

What you will need:

1 lb of thick cut bacon (cooked crispy - I bake mine in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes)

16 oz bag of chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet, or dark)

chopped nuts (I used pecans but any nut works well)

bacon bits (I used bagged bacon bits but you can make your own)

Cookie sheet

Wax paper

Double boiler

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Cut crispy bacon into bite-sized pieces and place on cookie sheet.

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler.

Dip bacon into chocolate.

Top with a mixture of chopped nuts and bacon bits.

Put on cookie sheet and put in the refrigerator to set up for approximately 10 - 15 minutes.

Share with your Valentine!!! Enjoy!

365 Days of Bacon - Day #12 Bacon Advent

I love this pork nativity scene…but it is not what I ate for Day #12 of Bacon Advent.

On the 12th day of Bacon Advent I was invited to a Christmas party at one of my favorite restaurants and saved my bacon eating for the day for the party. My assumption was that there would be bacon at the party…because after all, it is not a real party without bacon right? Well, big bacon fail! While the party was fantastic and filled with other delicious items including pulled pork and great local craft beer, there was no bacon anywhere to be found. It was late when we left the party and at that point my bacon options were few so I chose to go home and eat something from my own bacon supply. I was not in the mood to cook up a bunch of bacon so I had to be creative. What I ended up eating was quite delicious although it sounds a bit odd. There is no picture because frankly it looked less than appetizing. What did I eat????

A peanut butter, honey and chocolate covered bacon sandwich…yep, blame the free-flowing craft beer I had earlier. Anyway, it was toasted gluten-free bread, crunchy peanut butter, a drizzle of honey, and my homemade dark Valrohna chocolate covered bacon and it was delicious. The bread was warm so it melted the peanut butter, honey, and chocolate together into a Nutella-like goo that was crazy yummy.
