Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen worked on this creation of chocolate and bacon.
Yield: 4 Servings
- 2 slices thick-cut bacon
- 1 tablespoon caramel sauce
- Two 1 ounce squares bittersweet chocolate, unwrapped
Place bacon on a rack in a shallow pan. Brush bacon with caramel sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes until crisp. Once cool, cut into 1-inch pieces. Meanwhile, line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Place bittersweet chocolate square about 1-inch apart prepared baking sheet.
Bake chocolate for 4 to 5 minutes or until softened. Using a spoon, spread the chocolate to a thin even later. Place the bacon pieces on top.
Chill for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Wrap in plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To use a candy bar:
If you are using a chocolate candy bar, reduce baking time to 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Spreading is not necessary.
