Me: "I think I may have just stumbled upon the cure for PMS."
Husband: "Oh? What is it?"
Me: "Chocolate dipped bacon."
Husband: "You have PMS?"
Me: "Not anymore."
Seriously though... I tried making this tonight as a Mother's Day treat for our family dinner tomorrow. It is all that everyone promised you it would be, and more. It also has no business appearing on a blog about weight loss and health but... I mean... c'mon... I am not advocating making or eating this every day, or every week, or every month. Once a year on a special occasion will do just fine. Sometimes there are moments in life when something just NEEDS to be enjoyed for the simple sake of enjoyment. This is one of them.
Lay bacon strips (cut in half) on a wire rack on a baking sheet and place in a cold oven.
Turn oven on to 400 degrees.
Bake for 25 minutes or until bacon is well cooked, but still pliable.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely, also pat with paper towels.
Melt chocolate of your preference in a double boiler.
Dip strips and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
Harden in the freezer for ten minutes.
Bad for nutrition, but good for soul.
