I recently polled the Living Low Carb…One Day at a Time Facebook fans and asked “What’s better than bacon?”  There were a ton of responses, but the most common answer was chocolate.  I admit to loving chocolate just as much, if not more than bacon.  To my surprise, a few followers suggested that the combination of bacon and chocolate is out of this world.  I myself had never tried this “classic” low carb and paleo combination so I knew I had to give it a try.  I ended up creating a delicious chocolate and bacon candy.  The sweetness of the chocolate pairs nicely with the saltiness of the bacon.  Sweet and salty makes a great combination!

So now I ask you, What’s better than bacon AND chocolate? :)

Chocolate and Bacon Candies (Low Carb and Paleo Friendly)

Ingredients

  • 5 oz dairy free 85% or higher dark chocolate (I used this brand)
  • 1/2 cup leftover bacon grease, melted (I strain my bacon grease through cheesecloth before storing)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 4 strips cooked pastured bacon, cut into small pieces
  • Sweetener to taste (Liquid or powdered work best-I used powdered Swerve or for Paleo use honey)

Instructions

  1. Start to melt the chocolate in a sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Add the bacon grease and coconut oil. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the sweetener, to taste.
  4. Line a mini muffin tin with 24 liners.
  5. Evenly distribute the bacon pieces among the 24 muffin cups.
  6. Fill each liner with the chocolate mixture.
  7. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until set.
