What is better than chocolate? Maybe bacon? Hum… I am not sure which is better. They both rock! So what happens,when you mix them together and add some homemade caramel. You get Bacon Bark! I am not even sure how I found this recipe. I have never even heard of Bacon Bark before I stumbled on Farmhouse38’s and thought, “Oh Yes! I have to make this!” It took me a while to,get around to it, but this is so amazing. Good for you, oh hell NO, but amazing, YES!
2 pounds bacon
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 packages of chocolate chips
Make the bacon. I like mine nice and crispy. Make yours how you like it. Cut it into bite size pieces. Spread the bacon onto a cookie sheet, in a nice layer. Preheat the oven to 350. Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Once melted, add the brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring for about 5 minutes, while it thickens and turns to a caramel color. Pour the caramel over the bacon and put it in the oven for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, take it out of the oven and add the chocolate chips over the top evenly. Put it back in the oven for 5 minutes. When it comes out of the oven, sprinkle it with salt, then smooth the chocolate out. Sprinkle a little bit more salt over top. Let it cool until the chocolate is hard.
It can be put in the freezer to speed it along. Then break into pieces.
