Maple and Chocolate Bacon Dessert of the Gods

Maple and Chocolate Bacon: Dessert of the Gods

If loving bacon is wrong, we don’t want to be right. If you feel the same way, our Maple and Chocolate Bacon may be exactly the crazy kind of dessert recipe you’ve been looking for. There’s nothing low-fat, low-cal or low-sugar about this unusual treat. We certainly can’t call it healthy, but hey, it is dessert after all. At least it’s gluten- and carb-free. We do suggest using only uncured, nitrate-free bacon to avoid eating the carcinogenic preservatives found in some heavily processed types of bacon.

Use this Maple and Chocolate Bacon as a sweet and salty topping for other baked goods like doughnuts, pancakes or waffles, or enjoy as is for a high-protein candy break.
