I really don’t need to say more than that. Bacon? Yes. Dark chocolate? Yes. Put them together? Sh*t yeah.
I must stress that this bacon should be super thick, more than just “Hormel-thick” cut. I usually buy my bacon from The Fresh Market’s butcher counter, but Whole Foods 365 brand has good uncured bacon as well as Applegate.
Bacon goes pretty fast in my apartment. Slather some chocolate on it, and oh man I can’t even tell you how delicious it is. There’s something about that sweet and salty combo that (in this case) reminds me of chocolate covered pretzels.
Side note, Burger & Beer joint on Miami Beach has an appetizer called “Pig in a Bucket” which is literally strips of Durac pork-belly bacon in a mini bucket drizzled in warm maple syrup. Say what?! Snack on that, and then add the rest to your naked burger and WOWZA. Momma’s happy now.
