Chocolate Bacon Pecans

Sweet and savory. Such a great combination, don’t ya think? I’ve seen it so much lately, salted caramel this and that. So, I thought why not chocolate covered bacon? And I’ll throw in some pecans just to switch it up a little bit.

Pretty simple concept but these little bites are rich and flavorful.

No secrets here, you’ll need just what the title says:
Bacon
Chocolate (use dip chocolate)
Pecans

One slice of fried bacon will cover 5-6 pecan halves. I made approximately 30. I used about half the chocolate in a Dolci Frutta microwave dip chocolate carton for all 30.

I started by wrapping pecan halves in bacon.

Once I popped these into the pan to fry, they kind of fell apart. So I revised my plan of action and just fried the bacon as usual. I would fry the bacon until crispy, chewy might not work so well in this situation. Transfer the bacon to a plate covered with a paper towel to cool.

I assembled these little guys on a sheet of parchment paper. I broke the bacon into pieces roughly the same size as the pecan halves. Then I placed the pecans onto the bacon pieces. I globbed on a dime sized amount of melted dip chocolate on top. I made sure the dip chocolate covers at least part of the bacon and pecan because it will serve as your adhesive.

Rows and rows of sweet and savory goodness. Let the chocolate completely harder before serving.

Try not to eat half of these while making them like I did!

Enjoy y’all!
