It's bacon. It's fudge. It's bacon fudge.

Something happened today.

I didn’t mean to do it, but somewhere between washing diapers and mopping floors, I accidentally made 2 1/2 pounds of sweet, salty, crispy, creamy heaven.

Alright, so it wasn’t a total accident.

I know, I know. I say that I strive to eat healthy foods, whole foods, natural foods. And it’s true. I promise…it’s true. But this particular project was inspired by the request of a coworker, and once the wheels started turning, something came over me and I just couldn’t stop myself…

Besides, I’m not feeding it to my kid, and about 95% of it is going to the office tomorrow to be devoured by my coworkers.

So, move over chocolate and peanut butter….

Blog friends, I bring you BACON FUDGE.

Wanna make it, too?

  • Get your bacon ready first. Cook one pound of your favorite high-quality bacon, preferably a maple or hickory smoked variety, until crispy. Crumble into small pieces (I chose to get rid of the really fatty parts, so I probably ended up using a little over 1/2 the pound on the fudge.)
  • Prepare your favorite fudge recipe. I used the Never Fail Fluff Fudge recipe. I’m not such a fan of the corn syrup in Fluff, but I know this recipe works, and didn’t want to lose my ingredients by experimenting. A bag of Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips elevates this particular fudge to perfection.
  • Once fudge is poured into the pan, sprinkle the top with bacon crumbles. Press slightly into the warm fudge so they stick. (Make sure to reserve 4 or 5 bacon bits to stick into the warm fudge on your spoon before licking. Just make sure not to have too much fudge on your face when your husband walks into the room. 😯 )

  • Drizzle the top of your slab o’ fudge with some additional chocolate (it looks pretty, and helps your bacon stay put.) I chose a bit of white and a little more dark.

  • Allow to cool; cut and serve. (Or lock yourself in a room, alone, and have at it. 😉 )

It’s that easy!

Enjoy, folks. And trust me…it’s worth the splurge!

    Oh my heavens. That looks…interesting.

    My bestie and I got chocolate covered bacon one time when we were hanging out. I wasn’t a huge fan, but he really liked it. We’re hoping to have a movie night before too long and I think this might have to go on the menu.

    This is total sin … and I love it! Chocolate is already great, but to add BACON … that’s just sin.
    I love the nitrite free Apple Bacon that Trader Joes sells (plus it’s the best apple infused bacon you could ever taste … beyond words). It might make this a little (very little) healthier, but who cares about all of that. I hope your co-workers really enjoyed this delicious delight.

      Thanks for sharing, Donna! That bacon sounds wonderful, but we don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby :(

      I would definitely choose nitrite free every time if given the option.

      Most of my coworkers did like it, but some just didn’t understand 😉

    I have been craving chocolate during this pregnancy, so right now I’m wishing I could climb through the monitor and steal this stuff…even though I know it would be old or gone by now ;D

      I wouldn’t recommend keeping it for very long, and I do store it in the fridge. But each time I made it, I brought it into work and it was gone in a flash!

    I don’t know about bacon fudge….. I love bacon, I love fudge, but the combination of the two just gives me the heebie-jeebies…….. my husband however would probably do just about anything for a batch of these!!!! I am definitely gonna file this little idea away for a special occasion (like when I need to apologize for something big, or a birthday, or just cuz I want him to owe me one!!!! hahahah)

    Holy moley!I am going to have to take the time to make this for my brother, who, if he could eat bacon for every meal, absolutely would. I think he’d really get a kick out of it. I actually think it’s probably pretty good, especially with the dark chocolate chips, making the chocolate much less sweet, yet offset by the salty bacon- I mean really, how far off is it from something like sea salt caramels, right? :)
