Sweet and savory. Such a great combination, don’t ya think? I’ve seen it so much lately, salted caramel this and that. So, I thought why not chocolate covered bacon? And I’ll throw in some pecans just to switch it up a little bit.
Pretty simple concept but these little bites are rich and flavorful.
One slice of fried bacon will cover 5-6 pecan halves. I made approximately 30. I used about half the chocolate in a Dolci Frutta microwave dip chocolate carton for all 30.
Once I popped these into the pan to fry, they kind of fell apart. So I revised my plan of action and just fried the bacon as usual. I would fry the bacon until crispy, chewy might not work so well in this situation. Transfer the bacon to a plate covered with a paper towel to cool.
I assembled these little guys on a sheet of parchment paper. I broke the bacon into pieces roughly the same size as the pecan halves. Then I placed the pecans onto the bacon pieces. I globbed on a dime sized amount of melted dip chocolate on top. I made sure the dip chocolate covers at least part of the bacon and pecan because it will serve as your adhesive.
