Maple Candied Chocolate Bacon

Everything is better with bacon. At least almost every single thing that I have tried with bacon has been a home run and while it tastes amazing wrapped around a filet mignon or topping a delicious deluxe burger, there is no denying that it is amazing all on its own.

As a Canadian, there are but a few things that we love with immense and patriotic spirit and those are maple syrup, coffee, chocolate and bacon.

Do I dare say, we love bacon almost as much as we love our significant others, right? So I thought, what better way to embody and enjoy all 3 together?

Did you know that males and females equally agree that adding bacon to the Valentine’s Day menu will be a hit? And young lovers, millennials aged 18 to 35-years old, are the most likely (21%) to want to treat their partner to a meal featuring bacon.

In fact, I know that Darasak and I are never disappointed when we add bacon to our meals whenever we cook together.

Mouthwatering, smoky bacon covered in a hard candy maple and brown sugar shell. Half-dipped in chocolate. This treat will rock your world!

Ingredients

  • 1 package or 250 grams of duBreton Smoked Bacon
  • 1/2 cup or 118 ml of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup or 118 ml of heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup or 59 ml of brown sugar
  • 3 oz or 89 ml of semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Take a rimmed baking sheet and wrap it with aluminum foil and top with a wire rack.
  3. Mix your maple syrup and brown sugar in a bowl until fully combined.
  4. Remove bacon from package and carefully place bacon into bowl and "toss" carefully.
  5. Make sure that bacon slices are covered evenly.
  6. Take your maple and brown sugar covered bacon and place in a single layer on rack.
  7. Place tray in the center of the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, give it a check and if it is browned, give it another 10 minutes. This will help give it a crispy, candied texture and avoid a softer chewier version.
  8. Remove the bacon from oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  9. Take bacon and proceed to dip into the baking sheet with pre-prepared chocolate.
  10. Dip half of the bacon slice horizontally leaving one half displaying the mapled bacon.
  11. Place on another parchment lined baking sheet and let it harden or place into fridge until chocolate hardens.

5 minutes before you pull the bacon

  1. Take a pot and fill it with water about half-way. Boil the water and place a glass bowl on top. This will create a double boiler.
  2. Reduce to a simmer.
  3. Add heavy cream and slowly stir in chocolate until smooth.
  4. Pour onto parchment lined baking sheet or loaf pan in preparation for bacon.

Optional

  1. You can use the excess chocolate, if any remains, as a chocolate bark. Simply break or chop a couple strips of bacon and sprinkle onto chocolate. Place in fridge, remove when hardened, break and enjoy.

Notes

You can use the excess chocolate, if any remains, as a chocolate bark. Simply break or chop a couple strips of bacon and sprinkle onto chocolate. Place in fridge, remove when hardened, break and enjoy.
