Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Cut bacon in half. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Dip all but the last inch of each strip of bacon in the melted chocolate. Place bacon on waxed paper and allow to cool and harden before serving.

A few additional notes on this recipe, which I submitted: Make sure the bacon is cooked until crisp; tugging on a piece of chewy, chocolate covered bacon is messy and not very appetizing! Also, the melted chocolate is sometimes a little on the thick side. If that happens to you, just use your fork to paint the chocolate onto the bacon. I hope you enjoy it!


I've been buying chocolate covered bacon at Marini's Candy Shops in Santa Cruz California, OMG it's a decadent treat so completely delicious and completely wicked, but worth a try now and then. I've made it at home too, it's relatively easy and the main trick is to have REALLY crispy bacon, blot it well after frying and before dipping or brushing on chocolate, and I've found thin-sliced bacon works best, thick-sliced tends to get tough after cooling. At Marini's they make it with both milk chocolate and also DARK chocolate, WOW! Now THAT'S a party in your mouth!


These were different from any dessert I have ever tried, I like the salty and sweet flavors together. The chocolate was way to thick, so I added 2-4 tablespoons of milk to it to help it melt and make it easier to dip the bacon in. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
