Sea Salt Maple Bacon Chocolate Bark

I made this for the hubby for Valentine's Day but you really could do it any time of year. I'm thinking it will make a good addition to my Christmas treat repertoire. Recipe originally from prudent baby. A few years ago my friend and I made chocolate covered bacon for a wine tasting party- which is basically what it sounds like- so good!

This is so simple but so gourmet- my kinda recipe!

ingredients:
1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
5 strips maple bacon
a sprinkling of sea salt

Melt chocolate in a double boiler (In case you are unaware, a small pot of water with a glass bowl set on/in it makes a great double boiler). While chocolate is melting cook bacon- you want it crispy crumbly! Drain bacon on paper towels. Once it is cool, crumble bacon- chop up the stubborn pieces. Stir bacon into melted chocolate. Pour mixture onto waxed paper and spread out. Sprinkle top with sea salt (not too much). Put in fridge until hardened.

variations:
You can use dark, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate chips depending on your preference.
Add as much or as little bacon as you like.

Try this fun gourmet treat, you'll love the sweet, salty combo- after all, bacon is meat candy!
