Chocolate Covered Bacon
- 6-8 slices pork bacon
- 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven at 375 degrees. Sprinkle brown sugar over all the bacon pieces. Bake bacon for 15-18 minutes depending on how you like it (crispy or not).
Arrange bacon on paper towels to absorb as much oil as possible. Meanwhile, in a double boiler, empty the container of chocolate chips and have them fully melted. You can melt milk and white chocolate in separate containers if you want to make two kinds or drizzle one on top of the other.
Prepare a clean piece of parchment paper on top of a baking pan or a plate. One way to serve the bacon is in small pieces for people to pick up with their fingers. Cut the bacon in half on a diagonal. Using tongs, dip the bacon into the chocolate, leaving a portion of the bacon chocolate free. This way, guests can pick up the bacon piece without getting chocolate on their hands.
Another way to prepare the bacon is by weaving it on skewers. Then, brushing the chocolate on one side and leaving the other without the chocolate. You can either fully cover the bacon or just drizzle some on top.
Arranged the dipped bacon on the parchment paper and place in the refrigerator to set.
