Sunday, July 15, 2012 Chocolate Covered Bacon

A San Diego Fair favorite. I tried it last year for the first time, it was coated in solid chocolate, I wanted to try and make it myself with a little less chocolate, I still need to work on perfecting it but it was pretty delicious.

I used the Chocolate Sauce from the Roasted Pears with Chocolate & Olive Oil we made for Valentine's Day. I remember it being easy to make and it mostly solidified when it cooled. Not a candy finish but it was solid enough to hold.

6 Pieces of Bacon
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 Tbsp Sugar
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
4 Oz. Bittersweet Chocolate, Chopped 

Cook the Bacon until crispy and delicious.

Bring the cream to a boil in a saucepan. Then, in a bowl, combine the chocolate, remaining butter, amaretto, and hot cream. Let stand for 1 minute and then stir with a spatula until smooth. Serve the roasted pears drizzled with the chocolate sauce and olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.

Dip into chocolate and set on wax paper. Place in freezer until solid, re-dip if necessary.


  1. Haha! This is awesome! Im going to have to try this.. my hubby would love me forever. Well.. more then he already does now. ha! :)

    1. My boyfriend got a big kick out of it, the one thing he recommended was to make the chocolate a little sweeter, I'm a big Dark Chocolate fan so that's what I used, but I'll give Milk Chocolate a try next time.

      Oh and I've got my Craft Exchange package all wrapped and ready to ship :)
      (And I remembered to take pictures before I used a whole role of tape on it!!)

  2. I'd say gross. Only they were tasting chocolate covered potato chips at Trader Joe's the other day. And I tried one. And then bought a bag. And then Brad and I proceeded to fight over whom they belonged to (the right answer was obviously me)!
