Chocolate Covered Bacon Recipe

‘Tis True…everybody loves bacon…okay maybe not, but they should.  It’s one of the yummiest foods ever and when I was asked to create a recipe for Winn Dixie’s “Everybody Loves Bacon Event” I knew exactly what I was going to make.  After we went to our local fair this past October, and indulged in all the typical fair foods, one fair food caught my little eye….Chocolate Covered Bacon.  Could two of the most perfect foods (in my personal opinion) be a winning combination.  After the first bite, I was hooked, this was a snack I wanted to have on hand for get togethers…think Superbowl Sunday!

So, I decided that is what I was going to make for this post…Chocolate Covered Bacon.

Chocolate Covered Bacon

I know you are drooling, well, if you are a bacon and chocolate lover like me you are.  The best thing about this recipe, aside from it tasting AMAZING, is it’s so simple.  I headed to Winn Dixie to pick up the ingredients I didn’t already have on hand: bacon, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes.  At home I already had the vegetable oil and other “extras” (sprinkles and little flowers).

Chocolate Covered Bacon Ingredients

After gathering the ingredients, and exercising every bit of self-control to not fry the bacon up and eat it all, it was time to get started!

  • Winn Dixie Thick Sliced Hickory Sweet Bacon
  • 2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chip
  • “Extras”: Sprinkles Flowers, Crushed Walnuts, Broken Peanut Butter cups, anything that you think will work


  1. Pre-Heat oven to 400°
  2. Place bacon, in whole strips, on a foil liked baking pan.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes until desired doneness (You want it crispy but not too crispy or it will break easy)
  4. Remove and place on paper towel to cool.
  5. Add dark and milk chocolate chips to a bowl, add vegetable oil, stir, and microwave in 30 second increments until melted. *If your chocolate is melting but seems too think, add a little more vegetable oil because it should be smooth*
  6. Dip bacon in chocolate (though I prefer to use a brush and gently brush it on, for less chance of breaking) and lay on foil
  7. Add any extras you like and once all are finished move into your refrigerator to set. Then enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Use any topping you like, drizzle with caramel, there are so many ways to make this to your liking!

This is such a simple recipe, and easy to make.  You can also choose to break the bacon up into smaller pieces if you like.  This is fun for kids to make as well.  While the younger ones may have a bit too rough of a hand to do the dipping, they will love adding the extras!

Bacon Covered In Chocolate

Candied Bacon

This makes a great snack for special occasions and think of those sweet and salty foods you will likely be eating at Superbowl Parties. This is a great combination of both!

Bacon Chocolate

While you can take them out of the fridge for enjoying, please note if you leave them out they can get a little soft, so I tend to bring them out while people are eating and put them back in the fridge when they take a break from the food.    Chocolate covered bacon is a treat for the tastebuds, if you are like me and crave sweet and salty almost simultaneously then this is one snack you will want to make!

    The first I heard of this was a few years ago at the Iowa State Fair. Apparently a chef from one of our local restaurants cooked up this idea. It made the news and everyone was like “Ewwww”. Then they tried it and look where we are now.

    I don’t eat bacon, but my husband is drooling over my shoulder looking at this! I’m going to need to make this for Father’s Day or his birthday or something!

  22. 22

    Wow I couldn’t do it. But I’m sure my kids would probably love this.

  23. 23

    I love bacon and chocolate but I just don’t know if I’d eat them together.

    I did have it for the first time a couple of years ago and was shocked that it was so yummy!

  25. 25

    Wow, I NEVER would have thought to do this, yet I love bacon and chocolate so hmmmm…

    No, I have not had it before. It sounds incredible and I cannot decide if I should try it for breakfast or dessert. Or both.

  27. 27

    I’ve never tried chocolate covered bacon but really want too!

    I do love bacon and have been wanting to try this but was unsure of how to go about it. I don’t know if I’d add sprinkles, but the shredded coconut sounds like it would be yummy.
