Chocolate dipped bacon is an instant dynamic duo. It's incredibly easy to make and a crowd pleaser every time with it's union of salty, crunchy, cured bacon and smooth, creamy, sugary chocolate. 

You'll find it won't stay on the plate too long. Whip it up for your next party, decadent morning brunch, or just for fun. Enjoy, I did. :D

Step 1: Things You'll Need

Gather the following:
  • 1/2 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 Cup White Chocolate Chips*
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Vegetable Shortening
  • 1/2 Pound of Bacon
  • Double Boiler**
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Spoon to Stir
  • Wax Paper
  • Aluminum Foil
  • 1 Ziplock Bag
*NOTE: I just used the white chocolate for decorative detail. You can omit them from the recipe and just use your semisweet chocolate if you'd like. You could also make white chocolate covered bacon and omit the semisweet chocolate. Get creative!

**NOTE: You can substitute a pot with water covered with a bowl for a double boiler. You can also melt your chocolate chips in the microwave--if this is the case, follow the alternate instructions in step 3. 
this just look so wrong
but it is so right
<p>my teen son should never see this! I'll probably make it for his birthday. </p>
<p>I made dark chocolate bacon cupcakes and these would have made better toppers than just the plain bacon. Next time!</p>
While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle a pinch of course sea salt. It adds a whole new flavor note.
<p>I made a Kosher Vegan version called Carob coated Tempeh Strips!</p>
<p>Has anyone tryed the combo? is it good? I want to make some cuz it looks awesome but i want to know if its worth a shot. :)</p>
Ok I typed hunger games in the search bar and up popped chocolate covered bacon
