Yep.. you read that right.. chocolate covered bacon. Do I really need to write out an enticing intro to get you to read more? I think not! But… I will.
Men are so tough to buy gifts for on Valentine’s Day , but can you really go wrong with bacon?!? NOPE! Present your man with a Ron Swanson-worthy plate of thick cut bacon, dipped in dark chocolate!
8-10 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked
1 bag of dark chocolate chips
Sprinkles or candy hearts are optional
In a large skillet, cook bacon until stiff. Place on a paper towel and set aside.
(1.) Heat a small sauce pan over low heat and add entire bag of chocolate chips. (2.) Stir occasionally for about 5 minutes or until all chocolate chips are melted. (3.) Dip a strip of bacon into chocolate and use the back of a spoon to spread chocolate up about ¾ of the strip. (4.) Place on a sheet of wax paper, add sprinkles, and repeat with remaining strips.
When finished, place wax paper sheet in the refrigerator to chill about 30 minutes. Serve when chilled!
