Yes. Chocolate covered bacon. If you're reading this
page for the first time you're either intrigued or appalled.
If you're interested enough to try it, here's how.
Cook the bacon until crispy but not dried out. (For
4 strips, a few minutes in my microwave does the
trick.) Pat all the grease off the bacon with paper
towels. Cut it into segments a few inches long unless
you really want long, kinda-unwieldy choco-bacon sticks.
Melt the chocolate. I use chocolate melts, made for
dipping fruit and stuff, and just follow the directions
on the package.
When the chocolate is good and soft, dip the bacon
in. Make sure both sides are coated - I gently scrape
the excess off with a chopstick so it doesn't get too
thick - and then set it on the parchment paper to cool
Show them to your friends and see whether they act
horrified or ask for some. If they've already tried
chocolate chip bacon cookies,
they'll almost certainly want some of these.
