bacon + dark chocolate

Actually I had this post in draft mode for awhile. Better late than never posting it.

After trying this bar, I was determined to try making a dark version.

With one piece of bacon, I made two mediants--just melted some 60% dark chocolate chips, sprinkled the bacon and then poured the melted chocolate onto parchment paper, then let it chill.

I think I need to tweak it a bit more, needs more saltiness.

Still a great combination though and my version had more bacon.

Hmm...I've just been able to get my candied bacon the way I like it and now I see this...

I think it will be on my list of things to experiment with...

I like the Mo's Bacon Bar but their Barcelona is my favorite for the salty/sweet fix. Your mediants look great! Maybe extra sea salt sprinkled on would help up the saltiness.

ooh, candied bacon, never had that before, will have to try making that. will be awaiting your experiments with chocolate, Jasmine :)

Thanks for the idea, DebinHawaii, that sounds like a great way to up the saltiness :)

Take care you two.
