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


  1. 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.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Place bark on a cutting board and cut into pieces — any size or shape you’d like. Serve at about room temperature.
