Better with Bacon – Bacon Bourbon Brownies…

Yup, that’s what I said, bacon + bourbon + brownies.  That equals deliciousness!

See that “crumble” on the top?  That’s diced bacon my friends.

I got wind of these from over at The Food in my Beard (now that sounds like a food blog I could get behind). He’s got great step-by-step photo instructions but no recipe.  For that, you’ll have to use what he did over at Food and Wine.

Even More Choco-Bacon…

The Wisconsin State Fair also getting in on the chocolate covered bacon fair food craze.  Here’s the video to prove it:

TDB’s official list of choco-bacon has included the Florida State Fair, San Diego County Fair and Mississippi Valley Fair (Davenport, IA).  I sure there is more out there, but this is what I have been able to confirm through the interwebs!

I wonder if the Michigan State Fair will join the choco-bacon club??  If so, I actually might have to go this year.

Better with Bacon – Chocolate Bacon Peanut Bark…

I’ve had a massive sweet tooth during the holidays so I thought that we could start out the “Better with Bacon” segment for the new year with something that makes my teeth hurt a little just looking at the picture…


Oh, and it’s REAL simple!!

Hit the jump to see this recipe…

Chocolate Bacon Peanut Bark


8 strips bacon
16 ounces chocolate 60%-75% cacao (chunks or chips are fine)
1 cup unsalted peanuts


In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon, turning several times, until browned and done, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop finely.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add chocolate to a double boiler (or a saucepan on top of another saucepan). Once the water begins to boil, add the chocolate. Using a spatula, stir continuously, until smooth and creamy.
Stir in the bacon and peanuts. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and spread to 3/8-inch thickness. Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour. The bark should be hard and chilled.
Place bark on a cutting board and cut into pieces — any size or shape you’d like. Serve at about room temperature.

What’s the BEST Candy Ever???

It’s Ham Solo in CandyBaronite!

It’s a chocolate Han Solo with peanut butter and BACON in the center! This is Awesome wrapped in Awesomemer with Awesomeness!!

Don’t believe me? Look at this…and try not to blow your mind…

What kind of woman 1) makes a mold of Han Solo in Carbonite, 2) makes chocolate bars in said mold and 3) puts bacon in her chocolate bar in said mold of Han Solo and 4) comes up with the name Ham Solo??? 

The bestest kind!

See more over at booturtle.

I’m late in the game featuring this so if you’ve already seen it on the interwebs, sorry for my delay.  Blame it on SNOWGASM (c).

Bacon Pic of the Day – Compelling Outdoor…


While this does violate the standard outdoor advertising convention of more than nine words…I think the method of delivery helps get the message across.

“So boss, I got this idea to move more of our chocolate covered bacon-on-a-stick.  How about a special? Say 2 for $3.00?  And to get that message out, how about a sign on the side of my cousin Bubba’s monster truck parked on top of a race car.  You know, like a metaphor for how we “crush” the competition or how our choco-bacon “rises” above the rest.  Oh, and we get an American flag for the truck to let people know that this is good ol’ Made In America choco-bacon. What do you think?”

Man I love marketing! ;-)

Hot Choco-Bacon in a Can!

How did this get past me?

It’s starting to get cooler up here in Michigan, might just be time to pick up a can of chocolate and bacon cocoa (or for those of you who like things spicy, how about some chipotle?).

You can pick yours up straight from McSteven’s website. $7.95 for a 7 oz. can.

Thanks Foodbeast

Better with Bacon – Peanut Butter Bacon Chocolate Cookies…

That’s a lot going on…but I have some experience with the bacon chocolate chip cookie and got to believe throwin’ some peanut butter in the mix is ONLY goin’ to make it better…

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Candied Bacon


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 slices cinnamon-sugared candied bacon (you can also use regular bacon for an easier and less sweet version)
1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip candied bacon slices in melted chocolate and let come to room temperature while preparing the dough. If needed, stick them in the fridge for a few minutes.
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy – about 3-4 minutes.
Add egg and vanilla, mixing until combined.
Add flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until just combined and dough forms.
Crumble bacon and fold it into dough.
Drop tablespoon-sized dough balls on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
