The Ultimate Candied Bacon

You may have seen chocolate-dipped bacon at your local food fair or bacon in chocolate-bar form at your local specialty store, but I promise you that this version surpasses anything else. Dipping the candied bacon only halfway allows guests to grab a piece without getting their hands covered in chocolate.

Preparation

Cut each slice of bacon crosswise into 3 pieces; place on lightly greased rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with one-third of the sugar, pressing gently to adhere.

Bake in 400F (200C) oven until sugar starts to bubble, about 7 minutes. With tongs, turn bacon; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake until sugar is golden and bubbly and bacon is lightly crisp, about 8 minutes. Let cool completely.

Dip each bacon piece halfway into chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper–lined baking sheet; refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.
