My dad is a farmer. He works hard every single day of his life. He gets no days off. The one weekend that he takes off for Thanksgiving isn’t even annual. It’s once every 2-7 years. He loves two things. He loves bacon. He loves chocolate. I’m thinking for his next birthday I’m going to have to make him this Chocolate Bacon.
This will have that irresistable sweet and salty flavor combo with some awesome bacon-y texture. Ohhh, yeah. Can’t beat it.
What a treat! Chocolate Bacon would be a hit at most any gathering, or just for a night at home. I’m not going to lie. I would totally forgo a “real” dinner in order to chow down on these yummy treats. Traditional dinners aren’t always for the best anyway. Had a hard day at work? Break out these babies, and maybe a glass of wine or something… Mmmmm.
