  • Thread each slice of bacon onto a skewer; place skewered bacon on the baking rack.

  • Bake bacon in the preheated oven until crisp; 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

  • Combine chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring after each interval.

  • Coat each side of the skewered bacon with the chocolate mixture using a pastry brush. Place coated bacon on a sheet of waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Cook's Note:

Optional toppings: candy sprinkles, finely chopped walnuts, pecans, pistachios, toasted coconut, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, or chopped dried apple chips. Sprinkle on topping of your choice while chocolate is still wet.
