Since bacon is so amazing, why not make the man in your life a different Valentine's Day gift? How about chocolate dipped bacon on a stick? It is fairly easy to make, here are the main supplies you need:
- Chocolate (any variety you can melt)
- Wax paper
Now the fun part of this recipe is what toppers you can put on it. Be creative! I tried cereals on mine, Cocoa Puffs looked the best. Lucky Charms would be perfect for St. Patrick's day, however, not as visually appealing. Sprinkles, pretzels, caramel candies, and salt also make good toppers. Make sure to add these before the chocolate dries.
Heart sprinkles for Valentine's.
Another option is to first cook the bacon, dip it in maple syrup, bake it in the oven at 450° for a minute, then cover with chocolate. Or do the same technique with brown sugar. It makes a very pretty glaze on the bacon.
Please share your ideas, we would love to hear them!
