There had been a party at my husband's work the other day. He got to try chocolate covered bacon. When he came home and told me, I couldn't believe it. It sounded just wrong. What's more is he said it wasn't bad.
How can that be?
That night we grilled burgers. I had a pack of bacon and I fried it up to have bacon burgers! Hubby mentioned to the kids about chocolate covered bacon. They wanted to try it. I pulled out the chocolate almond paste, melted a few chunks and we all had our try.
It wasn't bad! Almost like a chocolate covered pretzel, sweet and salty.
My 12 year old son thought he was in heaven. He has found his new favorite food. Good thing I don't buy bacon often. So, if you should ever get the opportunity to try chocolate covered bacon, go for it. (In small chunks, obviously. Don't go for an entire strip.)
