Recipe 4 life (or one of those recipe sites) sent me a link to Halloween treats. One of them was Chocolate covered Bacon! Why on earth would change anything about Bacon? It's the best breakfast food out there!
Don't get me wrong I love Chocolate, but on Bacon...?
Just had to post this because it is so funny. icon_smile.gif

Bacon is very trendy now. In my area we may be nearing the tipping point. Baconaise, bacon flavored mayo, was created here, LOTS of bacon salt - yum- and plenty of bacon topped cupcakes (maple syrup buttercream topped with a piece of bacon) and, of course, chocolate covered bacon.

Chocolate covered bacon is DELICIOUS!!!

It's best made with the thick cut, country bacon.

I felt the same way you did when I went to a chocolate expo at the Great Lakes Science Center. Every course of the meal included chocolate. I looked at the long, thick strips of bacon, 2/3 covered in chocolate, and thought, "Yeah, right. That HAS to be gross." Then, I tried it....and promptly went back for seconds.

I love salty and sweet together so this is awesome in my opinion.

I hosted a book club awhile back and we read a book called

The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Cookbook (it has cute stories in it besides just recipes)

We each picked a recipe and made it for the bookclub.

Someone made "Pig Candy"

Coat uncooked bacon in some dark brown sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

It was yummy!

I saw a show on the food network not too long ago when they made a bunch of recipes with chocolate and covering bacon was one of them.

So delicious. We make a cake with layers of crushed pretzels, caramel and chopped applewood smoked bacon in ganache as a filling. Covered with ganache, it's pretty much amazing. I get tired of it, being around it, but it's amazing nonetheless.

Well I guess I could try it but I'm not a sweet and salty together fan. Except Brown sugar on Ham. (tastes great when cooked in a crock pot!)
I'll trust you guys on your opinion though! icon_smile.gif

Chocolate and bacon go very well together. Salty and sweet.
