Bacon + Chocolate = WOW!
This weekend Sam and I did the unthinkable. We made a sweet savory mouth explosion by combining two of our favorite foods. Or perhaps I should say we made a savory sweet. Either way, we took two of the most delicious ingredients available - bacon and chocolate - and combined them in an unlikely way to create something that, while odd, is still really tasty.
The inspiration steemed from a recent visit with our friends Will, Carmen, and Danielle. Danielle shared the remains of a treasured candy bar with us, a fancy bar of solid chocolate dotted with tiny bits of bacon. The idea was the combination of sweet and salty, and heck, everybody knows that pork fat is one of the most delicious flavorings available (even if it does feel gross to admit that and put it in writing). Well, the candy bar was good, but there was not enough bacon. So we remidied that. Will and Carmen, we dedicate this to you!
Really, no recipe is neccessary. If you are a brave soul, I dare you to try this combo out. Think of yourself as an Iron Chef, and let the delicious world of sweet and savory unite!
