I have another great recipe for you today using bacon. As I have stated before my husband and I are both big lovers of bacon and today I decided to pair it with a traditional summer dessert. I actually never tried chocolate and bacon together until last year. I had always heard they went great together but turned my nose up at it and figured it couldn’t be any good.
Last summer we went to a huge food truck festival with over 50 food trucks. One of the food trucks was selling chocolate covered bacon and so we decided to try it. It was so delicious and everyone was right, the bacon and chocolate went great together. If you think about it, why wouldn’t they go great together, I mean think about chocolate and pretzels and salted chocolate. The saltiness of the bacon went great with the sweetness of the chocolate, it was really the perfect combination.
I decided to add some bacon to my favorite summer treat, s’mores. I don’t know how I could have never thought of this before. The saltiness of the bacon goes great with the melted chocolate and marshmallow sandwiched inside graham crackers. You need to add bacon to your next s’more!
Yum, these Bacon S’mores were so fantastic. It is crazy how a half of slice of bacon really amps up the flavor in a s’more and makes it so much better. Plus these are really easy to make, you just need to cook up some bacon before you make your s’mores. If you love the salty and sweet combinations, these Bacon S’mores are definitely a must try!
