Original recipe yields 12 skewers



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a baking rack on top of a large baking sheet.
  2. Thread each slice of bacon onto a skewer; place skewered bacon on the baking rack.
  3. Bake bacon in the preheated oven until crisp; 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  4. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring after each interval.
  5. Coat each side of the skewered bacon with the chocolate mixture using a pastry brush. Place coated bacon on a sheet of waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

My 10 year old grandson asked me to make him some chocolate covered bacon. I have heard of it, but have never tried it. Who knows where my grandson heard of it? I'm making it this week, so we'll give you our updated stars by the end of the week. Almost anything covered in chocolate is good, ha ha. Thanks for posting Denise! *** Back again, several months later. Just wanted everyone to know how much my grandson loved his chocolate covered bacon. I've made it a couple more times, and everyone loves it.



I made this with White chocolate and milk chocolate! It was awesome! Picture is included!
