The bacon trend may be waning, but that doesn’t inhibit Vosges Chocolate from charging over $8 for a 3 ounce bar of Chocolate-Bacon.
And really, how hard could it be to make? I decided to find out and learned, not very difficult at all.
Homemade Bacon-Chocolate Bars
3 slices (or more) bacon, preferably applewood smoked
6 ounces 62% chocolate
- Cook bacon until crisp and then drain really, really well. Coarsely chop.
- While bacon is cooking, melt chocolate over a double boiler. Stir with a rubber spatula. When about 80% of the chocolate is melted, remove the chocolate from the heat and keep stirring until the remaining chocolate melts.
3. Fold the bacon into the chocolate and continue stirring for a minute or two more. Pour the chocolate into molds and let set.
