Chocolate Covered Coffee-marinated Bacon

pinit

Yes. Really.

I’ve made chocolate covered bacon before. It was absolutely brilliant! I decided to step it up a bit with this one… and include another one of my favourite ingredients, coffee!

Remember, everything is better with bacon.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the bacon in the coffee for a while. I left it in the fridge for about 3 hours.

  2. Cook the bacon in the oven until it’s crispy. I put it on a wire rack to let a lot of the grease drip off.

  3. Let the bacon cool. Don’t be tempted to eat it now! (Do as I say, not as I do, remember…)

  4. Melt the chocolate together with the coconut oil and throw in the sea salt.

  5. Using tongs, dip the bacon in the melted chocolate and put on a plate. (Ideally, it would be a plate lined with baking paper – I didn’t have any baking paper. But it didn’t stick TOO much when I removed it from the freezer…)

  6. Stick in the freezer to cool.

  7. Extra bonus tip! I had a bunch of chocolate left over (probably because I ate a couple of pieces of coffee marinated bacon), so I poured it into an ice tray. I may have put in some bacon bits in the ice tray as well…! Cute little bacon chocolates. And some non-bacon chocolates – cause I ran out of bacon bits….
