There are few better ways to enjoy bacon than when it’s combined with chocolate. This is a quick way to impress your guests with a delicious treat.
Less than 5 minutes
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon bacon grease or coconut oil
1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts
(or any other nut)
4 strips bacon, cooked & chopped
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
(smoked sea salt is ideal)
Use two or three kinds of nuts in this recipe—live on the edge!
Melt the chocolate chips with the bacon grease over a double-boiler on low heat or in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir vigorously before adding more chocolate chips. Add microwave time only in 10-second increments to prevent burning the chocolate.
Spread the melted chocolate on parchment paper over a cookie sheet, and set aside to cool. Once the chocolate is nearly set but not entirely, sprinkle the hazelnuts, bacon, and sea salt evenly over the top. Chop roughly before serving.
