I wanna get some for a gift. Would prefer to buy it locally. Did a bunch of searching but no luck. West Seattle would be great but greater Seattle Area works too. Last resort I can order off of Amazon…March 20, 2012 at 12:07 am #751904
Are you looking for chocolate that has bacon in it? Or actual bacon that is chocolate dipped? For actual bacon, the only place that might have it (or can make it for you) would be The Swinery in West Seattle – I haven’t been there in ages, but they used to have a lot of bacon dessert foods. If you’re looking for chocolate bars with bacon in it, I’ve seen some in West Seattle Thriftway and PCC.March 20, 2012 at 12:19 am #751905
Swinery doesn’t seem to be doing their bacon and chocolate thing anymore. That was the genius of John Legge, who went on to launch Sugar & Salt: (http://www.sugarandsaltkitchen.com/p/products_21.html
It looks like you might be able to purchase some of his amazing creations through his Etsy site. Just go to the link above and click on products. I’ve had pretty much all of their products and all are highly recommended.
Otherwise, the Vosges bacon bar is available among the fine chocolate selection at PCC in West Seattle: http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/product/mos_dark_chocolate_bacon_barMarch 20, 2012 at 1:23 am #751906
Chocolate covered bacon?! OH WHAT HEAVEN THAT WOULD BE!!!!!
I’ve never heard or dreamt of such a fabulous combination, nor have I ever drooled as much as I am right now.
Honey get out of the kitchen it’s time for me to experiment!!!!March 20, 2012 at 1:26 am #751907
Someone get sbre a television and lots of free time to watch all of it.March 20, 2012 at 1:40 am #751908
I remember watching a show on food network, where the chef made bacon strips in the oven, and had them run through a chocolate coating machine and a candy store, and then served it for dessert at a banquet. Needless to say, they loved it. I know I would :)
Christopher…I was wondering what happened to JBL..thanks for the link…March 20, 2012 at 2:51 pm #751909
if you can’t find chocolate covered bacon
i found chocolate covered potato chips at Trade Joes..
not for those with limited resistance:(March 20, 2012 at 6:28 pm #751910
I can testify to how deadly the chocolate covered potato chips are. Every time I go to TJs, I can’t resist grabbing a bag.
Chocolate covered bacon sounds equally awesome.March 20, 2012 at 9:40 pm #751911
The substrate (be it bacon, fried potato, pretzel, nuts) is almost superfluous. The magic is in the simple combination of chocolate and salt. Put a sprinkle of sea salt on a scoop of chocolate ice cream sometime and you’ll see what I mean.March 21, 2012 at 5:49 pm #751912
Thanks for all the replies! I bought bacon and chocolate and will attempt the feat myself. But, I bought a Vosges bar as insurance!March 22, 2012 at 4:49 am #751913
Thanks for the props Christopher, but sadly Sugar & Salt Kitchen is currently on a hiatus. I’m too busy with my main source of income, managing the pastry side of The Essential Baking Company, and preparing for my first little one coming this summer. But my plan still is to go ahead an make Sugar & Salt a reality, it may not be for a couple more years though.
35this35mph…It should be pretty easy for you to whip up some bacon chocolate. The key is to cook the bacon until very crisp and drain well so not a whole lot of the bacon fat gets in there. Temper down some good quality chocolate and dip away. A little sea salt on top is a nice touch too.March 22, 2012 at 5:15 am #751914
The deed is done! Dilletante semi-sweet chocolate on thick sliced bacon on skewers! Pretty pleased with myself I must say! Bought a Vosges bar as an insurance policy, but it will just be gravy (figuratively) now.March 22, 2012 at 5:22 am #751915
Have to say…I was never impressed with the Vosges bar. The recipient of your gift will love your homemade one much better.March 22, 2012 at 2:10 pm #751916
not fair to have me thinking about dipping bacon in chocolate before i even have my morning egg…March 22, 2012 at 2:20 pm #751917
