Chocolate Covered Bacon & A Bittersweet Goodbye

Hello Food Bloggie Friends,
i know ive been MIA for the past couple weeks, ive been busy with work and some personal issues, and blogging seems to be the last thing on my mind lately.
This will be my last post ; a goodbye post,
tagged along with an interesting sweet-treat
(i mean c`mon this IS still a food blog, right? haha).

But this isnt permanent, who knows when ill be back!
maybe ill get over this bump in the road and come back as soon as next week!, so this isnt fare-well yet.
im sorry ive missed out on all of your delicious food posts, i wish i had the time or the energy to look through the weeks and weeks of amazing food ive been missing out on.. but instead i will leave you with a simple, unique and surprisingly delicious recipe.

Ready to find out what it is?
- Cue the drum-roll maestro! -
.... CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON !


now .. before you throw-up a little,
the pairing of "salty & sweet" is not an alien combination. As food-bloggers you know how often these two flavors can combine into something magical.
if youre curious as to how it tastes... TRY IT !
honestly, its not as bad as you might think, its actually quite interesting and i found it fun to nibble on. i made a bowl-full of these and although my family was a little skeptical to try it out, once they got past the first crunchy, salty, sweet bite, they automatically went for seconds.
& honestly.. who DOESNT love bacon?
or even CHOCOLATE for that matter?!
Heres how i did it :
Chocolate Covered Bacon
Recipe ;
- "Thick Cut" slices of bacon
- Chocolate Candy Melts.
To keep the bacon from curling, place a few strips of bacon
on a large plate, with a few sheets of paper towels.
Place them in the microwave and cook them in 40 second
intervals, being careful to flip them ; so the edges dont curl
inward.
Youre looking for fully cooked, CRISPY bacon slices.
otherwise,
imagine biting into a squishy fatty piece of bacon covered
in chocolate... ew .
Cut the bacon into 1.5 - 2 inch pieces.
*Tip : be sure to press on paper towels to
soak up excess oils
Melt a small bowl of Chocolate Candy melts in the
microwave.
(Careful to not burn the chocolate, i found that it helps to
let it melt in the microwave in 30 second sessions & to stir
and repeat until completely melted.)
 Add 1 tsp of vegetable oil & stir until its completely
incorporated into the chocolate.
Have fun dipping !
( i dipped my bacon pieces about 1/3 of the way,
i think showing a little peek of the bacon underneath
gave it a bit more character)
Lay them out on a cookie sheet to harden.
*Tip ; to prevent them from drying on stuck, cover your
cookie sheet with some plastic wrap & then place the
bacon pieces on top to dry, it'll be much easier to peel
them off 
& Theyre done already !
i used a bit of the extra chocolate i had to dip a
few strawberries as well, yummmm.
SO.. my last message,
My sleepy doggy; Coco & i will miss all of you.
who knows! once in awhile i might just pop in & check out
some of your lovely recipes & ill be sure to leave you guys
encouraging and awe-struck comments.
Dont forget about me! (:
love you all!

  39. I am really impressed with your writing skills
    and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality
    writing, it's rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

  40. I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, but I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me.

    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web might be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  41. This is due to the fact that you will not need
    to purchase another dresser for your child when he or
    she begins to grow up. Recently, I discovered that bassinets were being offered in non-traditional styles, such as round,
    and I am sooo jealous that I have already had my three babies, and being recently
    divorced, don't know if I will have any more children that would need such a piece. Check also for features like water- or flame-resistance.

  42. A� The rectangular shape and the bolted studs, which accent the
    tank watches, came from the styling of the Army tanks, of that time.
    A classic and timeless design, this watch boasts a
    round polished and brushed stainless steel case and bracelet, all
    of which is coated in a gold-tone finish for chic sophistication.
    Hamilton Mens Watches have always been known for their accuracy
    and simplicity, this model will not disappoint.
