Chocolate Covered Brown Sugar Bacon

The third and final installment in the Chocobacon Fest recipes is here.  Chocolate Covered Brown Sugar Bacon.

I got this idea after eating Praline Bacon at Elizabeth’s in New Orleans.  For my version, I was originally calling it Chocolate Covered Praline Bacon but realized that without the pecans, that’s a bit of a misnomer.  (If anyone tries to modify this and add pecans, do let me know how it turns out.)

If I were to make this recipe again, I would drizzle chocolate over the bacon rather than dipping it in order to have a bit less chocolate.  A friend suggested making bite-sized pieces of bacon and to package/serve the treat as a candy.

No matter how you do it, though, it’s pretty outrageous.  In fact, a friend of mine, with stars in his eyes, proposed marriage to the Chocolate Covered Brown Sugar Bacon spear.  Very romantic.

  • Put bacon on cookie tray in oven at 350 degrees F, until nicely browned
  • Cover with Brown Sugar, pressing it into the bacon to make a caked layer
  • Cook for an additional 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven and cool on a plate
  • While cooling, melt your favorite chocolate on a double boiler or in the microwave to a dipping consistency.  Dip room temperature bacon spears in chocolate (or drizzle on top)
  • Cool to harden in refrigerator.
  • Indulge

    I’m really intrigued by this recipe. We saw this advertised at a candy shop while we were at the beach and we kept wondering how it would taste. Your photo is mouthwatering, so if that’s any indication, I need to give it a try asap.

    • You should definitely try it – it’s so easy that even if you don’t care for it (which I can’t imagine that happening…) you didn’t waste a lot of time, energy, or ingredients.
