Just What You Never Wanted to Learn

Don't worry. I didn't either. But I read about it weeks ago...

Chocolate-Covered Bacon.

Yes, you read it rightamente. God's itty bitty, fatty, greasy treats covered by a light blanket of dark goodness.

Don't go to a fancy shmancypants place to purchase it. MAKE YOUR OWN. All you need is dark chocolate, bacon, a microwaveable cup and plate, paper towels (do NOT forget the paper towels), a microwave and a fridge.

Sandwich the bacon (cut in thirds) between two paper towels, and nuke the crap out of it. Say for two minutes. Change the paper towels (which will be tres slimy) and do it for another minute until it's REALLY crispy. Remove and dab with some more paper towels.

Place enough dark chocolate to cover half the bacon with a light coat in a bowl (use your best judgment...I trust you) and slowly nuke and stir until it's juuuuuuuust riiiiiiiiiight (about 20 seconds at a time). Remove from the magnetic cooker (that's what Nana has called it since her stroke) and...DIP THAT BACON. Place the chocolate-covered bacon back on the greasy plate (the grease will keep the chocolate from sticking to the plate too much) and place in refrigerator to let set.

It's freakin' delicious. Don't let anyone anywhere tell you otherwise.


Appetizer? Dessert? Breakfast? It's your choice.

  1. It sounds much better this way than the chocolate bar with bacon that Christopher and I tried. Especially since I trust your judgment. (For better or worse - especially since I first typed that as "I tryst your judgment.")
