Chocolate Covered Candied Bacon

This Chocolate Covered Candied Bacon recipe is so indulgent and over the top that it should be a crime. Luckily for all of us it's not.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two rimmed (very important they are rimmed) cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cut your bacon in half, this is optional, it's just easier to work with when you do this.
  • Pour brown sugar on a plate or a container big enough to fit bacon into.
  • Take each slice of bacon and dunk both sides in the sugar. Lay the pieces on the parchment as you go, making sure they don't touch.
  • Pop the cookie sheet (one at a time for even cooking) in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes depending how light or dark you like bacon. You can flip halfway through if desired.
  • Take the pan out of the oven and repeat with second cookie sheet.
  • In a double boiler (bottom filled with water, top is used for chocolate, or you can use a heat proof bowl) melt your chocolate till it's smooth.
  • Allow to cook slightly.
  • Remove your second cookie sheet with bacon. Do not wander off and forget it's in there. Been there, done that, have the t-shirt.
  • Now line two more cookie sheets or cutting boards with new parchment.
  • Peel the bacon off the cookie sheets one at a time and dunk the long edge of the bacon in the melted chocolate.
  • Lay pieces on the new parchment.
  • Allow chocolate to set. (good luck with this step!!!)
  • Serve with a big old chocolatey bacon smile! burp


I used semi sweet chocolate. You can use milk or dark. It's a personal thing.
