Candied Bacon Hot Chocolate

I drink hot chocolate almost every day of winter. Hot chocolate is the epitome of winter in my mind. It brings back memories of childhood. But now I’m an adult so it’s time for my hot chocolate to grow up too. That’s why I add candied bacon to it. Say whaaaaat? Yes, candied bacon. It’s like bacon, but it’s candy. I’ll cut the chit chat and let the pictures do the talking.

How to Make Candied Bacon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet.

Trim any really fatty areas of the ends of bacon, if any. Place on rack.

Bake for 6 minutes. Turn and bake for another 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine brown sugar, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.

Carefully using tongs, dip each bacon slice into the brown sugar mixture, pressing down to stick. Do this on both sides.

Put back on the rack and bake for another 5 minutes. Flip over and bake for another 5 minutes.

At the very end, put under the broiler for 15-30 seconds on each side. Do not burn!

Place onto another clean cooling rack.
