Bacon Fudge

My hus­band, Justin, has been on this “You should add bacon to that” craze. So when a friend asked, for me to make Fudge with no nuts, Justin’s imme­di­ately told me, “You should add bacon to that”, and I did, and it was good, very good.

I now have offi­cially jumped on the choco­late and bacon band­wagon, and I couldn’t be hap­pier. Two things I love most (other than cheese­cake) are bacon and choco­late. It would make sense to mix the two. Right??? Right. That being said, you really must try it. I never real­ized how easy fudge was to make. The hard­est part of this recipe was cook­ing the bacon, which was a piece of cake.

I think I just had an epiphany. Choco­late Bacon Cake. Do I dare take it that far? Time will only tell.

My hus­band has taken it a lit­tle far­ther. While I was cook­ing the bacon, Justin begged to have a piece, and being the charmer that he is I gave him one. With that one piece, he made a PB&J with Bacon. That just sounds wrong on so many lev­els, but he insists that it was good. Some peo­ple just can’t be helped.

 

Bacon Fudge

Yields: 1 — 8“x8” pan

Ingre­di­ents Vol­ume
Semi­sweet Choco­late Chips 3 cups (18oz)
Sweet­ened Con­densed Milk 14 oz can
But­ter ¼ cup (½ stick)
Sea Salt ¼ tsp
Bacon, cooked and chopped 1 lb
Semi­sweet Chocolate 1 cup

Instruc­tions

  2. Place the 3 cups of choco­late chips, sweet­ened con­densed milk, but­ter, salt, and remain­ing bacon in a sauce pan on medium heat and mix till every­thing is fully combined.
  • Pour into a well greased 8“x8” dish.
  • Using the  ¼ cup of bacon and sprin­kle on top of the fudge. I also sprin­kled some course sea salt on top as well.
  • Heat up the 1 cup of choco­late chips in a bowl over a pan of hot water until fully melted. You could also do this part in the microwave.
  • Once fully melted driz­zle over the top of your fudge with a spoon or a dec­o­rat­ing bag.
