Chocolate Bacon

Yes, you read that right - Chocolate Bacon. Or actually, "Chocolate Covered Bacon with Almonds" is the full name. An unusual combination that actually tastes shockingly good. Kind of makes sense when you think about it, though... a little sweet, a little salty... yeah, it works!

My husband saw this done on an episode of Dinner: Impossible on the Food Network and decided to give it a try. Here is the recipe if you'd like to give it a go:

1 pound thickly sliced slab bacon
1/2 pound milk chocolate
1/4 pound toasted almonds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place bacon on a sheet tray and cook until crisp, about 25 minutes. Melt chocolate in double boiler over low heat. Dip crisp bacon in chocolate and place back on sheet tray.
Sprinkle with almonds and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
