chocolate covered bacon
Have I mentioned that I love bacon? Until about two years ago I was rather apathetic about bacon. When my mom made it I would eat it, but I never went out of my way to get some and never craved it.
Suddenly, though, it's all I want to eat. Today my family visited the L.A. County Fair and I broadened my bacon horizons by trying some chocolate covered bacon.
Three strips of cooked bacon covered in dark chocolate, oh my mouth waters at the thought of the union of two favorite foods.
The experience was very pleasant, though I'm now curious in making my own. The strips were really covered in chocolate so the overall taste was similar to eating lightly salted chocolate. I want to make some using Scharffen Berger chocolate and use less chocolate so the bacon taste a slightly more pronounced.
My dad thinks I'll die of clogged arteries at a young age. This may be true, but bacon is just too good to pass up.
