Chocolate Covered Bacon!
Our calendar is packed full of Food Holidays just ready to be celebrated? On International Bacon Day, we think chocolate covered bacon is a perfect choice for a bacon dessert that you just have to try!

What is Chocolate Bacon?
"Chocolate-covered bacon is an American dish that consists of cooked bacon with a coating of either milk chocolate or dark chocolate. It can be topped with sea salt, crumbled pistachio or almond bits. References on the internet date back at least to 2005. The popularity of the dish has spread and the dish has featured on television shows about food. A variant has been served at state fairs, where the bacon is served with chocolate sauce for dipping. It was even developed into a gourmet food bar."

Preparation and variations:
"The type of bacon used to make chocolate-covered bacon is the traditional streaky bacon. It is first cooked, then immersed in melted chocolate; toppings (if any) are added, and the dish is allowed to cool. A variation is to dip the bacon in melted chocolate for a partial coating, leaving some of the bacon showing."

"The recent popularity in the United States of bacon combined with sweet ingredients, caused by the quick (and sometimes viral) spreading of recipes in national media and on the internet, has led to unexpected culinary inventions, such as candied bacon cubes, which are based on a recipe for "Candied bacon with whipped cream" printed in the New York Times, and bacon strips baked with brown sugar used as garnish for martinis."
