  • 16 ounces thick sliced bacon
  • 11.5 ounces chocolate chips (milk or semi sweet)
  • 2 tablespoons shortening


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place bacon on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. The crispier, the better.
  2. Once the bacon is cooked, blot it with some paper towels to absorb the grease and remove from pan to cool.
  3. Place chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals stirring often until smooth and completely melted.
  4. Using a pastry brush or the backside of a teaspoon coat one side of the bacon completely. When that side is dry, turn it over and coat the other side. (optional: can add holiday sprinkles)
  5. Eat them or package them up for gift giving.
