CARAMELIZED CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON

Dave at My Year on The Grill has dared, double dared in fact us KrAzY kitchen ladies to do a recipe. In my case the joke is on him. My niece had told me about this chocolate covered bacon she'd had at a county fair and it intrigued me so much I made it back at Thanksgiving time. It didn't last long around that house full of bacon and chocolate lovers. I then took it one step farther and caramelized the bacon first - talk about a taste treat for the tongue!

CARAMELIZED CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON
10 slices thick bacon
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoons cider or balsamic vinegar
1 cup milk chocolate morsels
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons milk
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Whisk together the brown sugar and vinegar.
  • Toss bacon slices in the mixture, packing it onto the slices.
  • Layer bacon and onions on grilling rack.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until JUST crisp. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
  • Cool completely.
  • In a double boiler combine chocolate, butter and milk until creamy.
  • Carefully dip bacon slices.
  • Cool on wax paper.

I just cannot imagine what this combo tastes like. In part of my mind, I bet it's great, but it's just so over the top that my arteries are complaining about my reading the recipe. I am glad you can answer Dave's challenge.

LOL I felt like that too until my niece convinced me to try it last Thanksgiving. She was so animated about how good it was that I tried it and surprisingly liked it. I remembered the caramelized bacon I had made for a frittata so thought I'd try that and liked it even more yet!

You did it! I have to try it as soon as my 3 month clean eating comes to a close!
