Chocolate Covered Bacon? Oh yeah! {Recipe}

Last week, I was fortunate enough to travel to the Kraft Kitchens in Glendale, Illinois to learn about their new products and initiatives.  I am looking  forward to sharing all the details (I even got to ride in the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile!), but there was one recipe that I knew I needed to share immediately.  For those times when you are craving sweet AND salty, this is totally for YOU!

Chocolate-Bacon Crunch

Prep Time: 10 min. | Total Time: 40 min. (incl. cooling) | Makes: 12 servings.

What You Need:

1 pkg. (12 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Thick Sliced Center Cut Bacon
2 squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
2 Tbsp. chopped PLANTERS Pecans

How you Make It:

  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Place bacon in single layer in foil-lined 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 15 to 20 min. or until crisp. Drain on paper towels; place on waxed paper.
  • Melt chocolate as directed on package; brush on 1 side of bacon. Sprinkle with nuts.
  • Refrigerate 10 min. or until chocolate is firm. Cut each slice into 4 pieces with kitchen shears.

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  While my hotel and travel expenses were paid for by Kraft, all opinions remain 100% mine.
