chocolate-covered-bacon.jpgSo I know I already talked about Bacon Chocolate, a colloidal mixture of high-quality chocolate and bits of yummy bacon. But this is a whole new thing. Full strips of bacon, apparently dipped in fudge. Someone sent me this image, and I just had to find out who was making this magic, and where it could be found. Turns out you can only find it at Marini’s, a candy shop with four locations to serve you in Santa Cruz, California. Fortunately, Marini’s has online ordering capabilities. Unfortunately, chocolate covered bacon is not currently on their online menu. But if you just have to try this modern marvel, I suggest you place a phone call or send an email and see what they’ll do for you.

On a completely different subject, I tried the bacondaise this weekend. I had major fear because I ended up using this recipe. All the science content gave me a complex before I even got started. But I have to say, it was not as difficult as I had feared, and was a huge hit with the husband. I didn’t have 6 to 8 ounces of bacon grease on hand, so I ended up going with about half grease, half butter. Turns out I don’t like hollandaise with bacon grease any more than I did without, but I might go ahead and try it with some cheese grits just to be sure. I hate to dismiss a wildly unhealthy recipe before I’ve given it a fair shake.
