I was watching the Food Network "Down Home With The Neelys" this weekend and they made chocolate covered bacon.
That's a first for me...I copied and pasted their recipe below and would like to try it some day. Dunno. Sounds interesting - has anyone ever tried or even heard of it? I'm curious...
- 16 slices applewood smoked bacon, thick cut, cooked crisp and cooled, cut in half
- 3 (4-ounce) bars semisweet chocolate, chopped (recommended: Ghirardelli)
- 1 (4-ounce) bar white chocolate, chopped
Melt both the semisweet chocolate and white chocolate in separate double boilers. Whisk until completely smooth. Remove them from the heat.
Dunk the bacon into the semisweet chocolate and make sure it is completely coated. Let excess drip off and lay on a parchment or waxed paper lined quarter sheet tray. Repeat with all the bacon slices. Drizzle the white chocolate over the chocolate covered bacon. Put the sheet tray in the refrigerator to set, about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the sheet tray to a serving dish and serve.
