Chocolate-Dipped Bacon
Ingredients
  • 1 16  ounce package  thick-sliced bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
  • 2  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 4  ounces  bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped pistachio nuts, almonds, and/or cashews
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two 15x10x1-inch baking pans or shallow roasting pans with parchment paper. Arrange bacon slices side by side in the prepared baking pans. Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Transfer to wire racks; let cool (up to 2 hours).

2. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In a small heavy saucepan heat and stir chocolate over low heat until melted and smooth. Dip bacon pieces halfway into chocolate, letting excess drip off. Place on the prepared baking sheet. While still warm, sprinkle with nuts. Chill until chocolate is set. Place bacon in bag; close bag.
