    Sweet meets salty in this recipe for chocolate-covered bacon. If you've never tried bacon and chocolate together, you might be surprised at how well rich, semi-sweet chocolate complements the smoky flavor of crispy bacon. We like to top ours with a few sprinkles of flaked sea salt, but you can use toasted nuts or any other toppings of your choice.

    Despite what their name might suggest, bacon caramels actually have a subtle bacon taste since the recipe does not call for any actual bacon in it. Rather, they are made with bacon fat instead of butter, so they have a slight undertone of a smoky, savory flavor. Of course, you can always top them with some crumbled bacon to boost the pork factor.
