Chocolate Covered Bacon


  • 12 strips Field Bacon
  • 1 pound chocolate (or chocolate candy coating)
  • Flaked sea salt, chopped nuts, or other toppings of your choice (optional)


  1. Cook bacon until it is crispy on stovetop or in oven.

  2. Once bacon is cooked, drain fat and let cool, then pat both sides of bacon with a paper towel to remove any lingering fat.

  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in microwave.

  4. Holding a strip of bacon at the top, carefully dip most of it into melted chocolate. If you have trouble dipping bacon, use a spoon to pour melted chocolate over bacon until both sides are covered to your liking.

  5. Lay chocolate-dipped bacon on a tray or plate covered with waxed paper. While chocolate is still wet, sprinkle top with flaked sea salt, chopped toasted nuts, or any other toppings you’d like. Repeat until all of the bacon is covered with chocolate.

  6. Refrigerate tray to set chocolate for about 15 minutes. Once set, let bacon come to room temperature, and enjoy!
