Chocolate Covered Bacon

1 pound bacon, the thicker the better, cut into fourths
12 ounces chocolate chips, bittersweet, semisweet, or milk – your choice

3. Dip cooled bacon into chocolate and then place on parchment paper to cool.  Transfer to refrigerator or freezer to chill completely before serving. 

Chocolate Covered Bacon

I was looking for a diabetic-friendly treat to take to an event, and someone suggestion chocolate covered bacon.  Now I’m not sure that it’s actually diabetic-friendly, but it seemed like a fun thing to try. 

I thought these were fine.  Nothing I’d go out of my way to order in a restaurant, but definitely interesting enough to try.  Some people loved them, and some didn’t care for them at all.  So lots of personal variation when it came to enjoyment.
