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.
Chocolate Covered Coffee-marinated Bacon
Start by marinating the bacon in the coffee for a while. I left it in the fridge for about 3 hours.
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.
Let the bacon cool. Don’t be tempted to eat it now! (Do as I say, not as I do, remember…)
Melt the chocolate together with the coconut oil and throw in the sea salt.
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…)
Stick in the freezer to cool.
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….
