Ingredients

Instructions

  • Break the chocolate bar into small pieces and place into a double-boiler or an oven-proof dish that is at least 6 inches wide. Add coconut oil and either put on the stove on low or in a 200-degree oven on the lower rack.
  • Stir the chocolate to help it melt smoothly and uniformly.
  • While the chocolate is slowly melting, fry or bake some uncured, extra-thick bacon. You want it thoroughly cooked, but you don't want it so crispy and stiff that it crumbles apart when it cools down.
  • Place the cooked bacon on some paper towels to soak up excess grease and let cool down enough that you can touch it.
  • Once the chocolate mix is melted and smooth, remove it from the oven or take it off the stove.
  • Use tongs or a fork to dip your bacon slices into the melted chocolate. Make sure you coat both sides thickly, and leave an uncoated end like a "handle."
  • Lay each piece on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil or wax paper to cool.
  • When all slices are fully coated in chocolate, sprinkle sea salt over them, and put them in the fridge to harden.
