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!
