Friday, September 21 – Chocolate Covered Bacon


  • 2lb thickly sliced bacon
  • 1 lb good quality dark chocolate;
  • 4 tbsp ghee


  1. Fry the bacon in a medium hot and large pan until crisp. Fry in batches if your pan is too small to contain all the bacon slices at once.
  2. Remove bacon from the pan and dry with a paper towel. Keep the rendered bacon grease for future cooking.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a pot with the butter or ghee slowly so it doesn’t burn.
  4. Using thongs, dip the bacon slices in the chocolate, either on one half of the slices or on the whole slice.
  5. Place the chocolate dipped bacon on a cooling rack placed over foil or parchment paper.
  6. Let cool for a bout 2 hours, until the chocolate has hardened.
  7. Cut the bacon slices in bite sized pieces, if desired.
  8. Serve right away or store in a container in the refrigerator.
