It’s no secret around my family that pork is my favorite of all the meats. In fact, my cousins like to tease me and say, “She can’t go a day without eating her pig!” I don’t care though. I wave my swine flag with a massive amount of pride. The other thing that I can’t go too long without is sweets. Chocolate, to be exact… chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream, chocolate bon-bon’s, chocolate cookies, chocolate shakes and bars… you get the idea. Because of these two facts, I have found a way to combine the pair of food loves in one: Chocolate Covered Bacon. Yup, you heard right. I know that most people might find this combination a bit strange and usually equate bacon with breakfast or a sandwich but let me assure you that this fusion is actually freaking heavenly and you will fall in food-love with it. My fiancé is also a bacon fan (surprise, surprise that I ended up with someone after my own heart!) and with Valentines Day around the corner, I’ve decided to show him my love with a box of chocolate covered bacon. I know he’s going to delight in this unique, salty, yummy gift. Give it a try for your sweetheart…. I’ll bet he’ll be surprised and cherish a cool gift like this.
