    Chocolate Covered.....

    Hubby and I apparently have too much time on our hands. Lately we have been making all kinds of chocolate covered goodies: peanutbutter truffles, chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, strawberries, pretzels.

    Today my chocolate covered creation was Bacon!

    My daughter recently made Bacon Maple cupcakes for her son's football team dinner. They were a hit. Think pancakes, syrup and bacon.

    My teeth itch just looking at those pictures. LOL

    I like my bacon to lay on my plate, plain and crispy.
    Twinkies should never be harmed like that.....lol

    Looks good to me. Please leave the white chocolate swirls off my batch of bacon, and I'd like extra sprinkles on my twinkies if you'd be so kind.

    I think I'll go hunt for my old fondu pot.

    The most extreme thing I have eaten chocolate covered is pretzels. I know, not very adventurous!

    Normally I make honey chipolte pecans and white chocolate popcorn at Christmas time to give away to all my friends, I am definately adding chocolate bacon to the list if Christmas goodies. Took that batch to a party that I was catering last night and it was a hit, everyone that tried it loved it. Making another batch right now because its so yummy!

    Next on my list of things to dip in chocolate is potato chips

    not very adventurous, maybe, but DELICIOUS!! Have you tried Nutella?? For an afternoon snack (or well, just about any time, actually) I get a spoonful of Nutella and a handful of pretzels and dip the pretzels in the Nutella... YUMMMMM

    And I LOVE the idea of chocolate covered bacon!!! can't wait to try it...

    Well....can't say I've ever heard of chocolate covered bacon. I do however have a passion for dark chocolate...especially fresh strawberries dipped in dark chocolate.

    My family insists that I make Buckeyes several times a year. There always seems to be some extra chocolate left over, and then anything not nailed down is fair game. Bacon, Twinkies, Candied orange slices, marshmallows, graham crackers, peanut butter between some Ritz crackers, pretzels, and jelly beans. Chocolate seems to make everything better.
