Instructions Checklist
  • Cut bacon in half. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip all but the last inch of each strip of bacon in the melted chocolate. Place bacon on waxed paper and allow to cool and harden before serving.

A few additional notes on this recipe which I submitted: Make sure the bacon is cooked until crisp; tugging on a piece of chewy chocolate covered bacon is messy and not very appetizing! Also the melted chocolate is sometimes a little on the thick side. If that happens to you just use your fork to paint the chocolate onto the bacon. I hope you enjoy it! Read More

I thought because I adore chocolate AND bacon that I would love this savory/sweet treat but it was not the recipe I hoped it would be. A variation on savory/sweet bacon in to fry your bacon very slow and before it's done drain the fat and then add (approx. 1/2 cup per lb bacon) honey and continue cooking until the bacon is well done. You want to cook this slow so the bacon doesn't crisp up but stays chewy. Great for breakfast or on top of salads. Read More

I've been buying chocolate covered bacon at Marini's Candy Shops in Santa Cruz California OMG it's a decadent treat so completely delicious and completely wicked but worth a try now and then. I've made it at home too it's relatively easy and the main trick is to have REALLY crispy bacon blot it well after frying and before dipping or brushing on chocolate and I've found thin-sliced bacon works best thick-sliced tends to get tough after cooling. At Marini's they make it with both milk chocolate and also DARK chocolate WOW! Now THAT'S a party in your mouth! Read More

These were different from any dessert I have ever tried I like the salty and sweet flavors together. The chocolate was way to thick so I added 2-4 tablespoons of milk to it to help it melt and make it easier to dip the bacon in. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Read More

Addictingly good! I actually snapped the bacon into bite-size pieces before throwing them into the bowl of melted chocolate. If the chocolate is too thick add a splash of milk. I also baked my bacon over a rack placed over a foil lined baking sheet until really crispy. I put them onto a paper towel to soak up the rest of the grease & waited for them to cool before throwing them into the bowl of melted chocolate. Read More

Though it was tasty it was a bit much. And you have to eat them fresh or the bacon looses its crisp and it is soggy bacon dipped in chocolate. Read More
