I really didn't intend to make two desserts this week, but Bacon is just too good, and I couldn't just make ONE dessert! And they both turned out GREAT! This is a small recipe, but you can easily double or triple it.
Have fun with this one. Anybody can make it since it is super easy and fast!
CHOCOLATE ALMOND BACON BARK
1 cup 60% dark chocolate pieces
4 slices of bacon, fried crisply (but not burned!) and diced
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Melt chocolate pieces on low heat in a saucepan. Add bacon and almonds, reserving a bit to sprinkle on top. (To toast the almonds, place in the oven on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.) Line another baking sheet with parchment paper and turn out the mixture onto paper. Sprinkle remaining bacon and almonds on top. Let set and refrigerate before breaking into shards.
