Recipe: Bacon Chocolate Apple Slices

Thursday, October 25, 2012

This recipe was inspired by several things. First of all, fall is the perfect time for apples, isn't it? But more than apples, I have been eating a lot of dark chocolate recently. Like, really dark. I eat it at night, with a glass of red wine, while I read or listen to music. It's really nice, and it makes me feel fancy. And finally, I don't think I need to remind you how much I love bacon.

I sent my mom a text message before I left work last night that said, "Do we have apples, bacon, and chocolate?" and believe it or not, she didn't say, "Get a grip, Megan!" She actually said "Let me check," and then "Yes," so I rushed home with excitement.

This is what we're going to do--we're going to dip some apples in dark chocolate and then we're going to cover them with homemade bacon bits--because, why not? Ready? Let's do it.


One Honeycrisp apple
A bar of dark chocolate (I kept it Paleo with this one)
Several strips of bacon

1. Cook the bacon until it is really, really crunchy. You're going to turn these into little bacon bits.
2. Once it's cooked, chop it up. I used a chopper to get it as fine as possible. 
We're talking almost bacon dust, people.
3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
4. Slice up your apple and set up an assembly line with apple slices first, then chocolate, then bacon.
5. Dip a slice in the chocolate, let it drip a little, and then sprinkle the bacon bits on the chocolate.
6. Plate them, show your friends, and feel like a culinary genius for a few minutes. 


  1. oh YUM. I need a few of these right now.

  2. I have been eating WAY too much dark chocolate recently. Like WAY TOO MUCH. And here you are giving me a paleo recipe that can incorporate even more dark chocolate eating. This is bad.
    Regardless, this is a delicious looking (but still somehow pretty simple!) recipe and I love it. Yay for paleo snacks!

  3. there are no words. but there is a question, can we eat it for breakfast?

  4. That is the best chocolate ever. Seriously- the darker the yummier :) I just made uber healthy pumpkin cookies with chopped up dark chocolate (same brand) and they were delish!
    •1 cup of whole wheat flour
    •1 cup of all purpose flour
    •1/2 cup agave nectar
    •1 teaspoon baking powder
    •1 teaspoon baking soda
    •2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
    •1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
    •1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
    •1 teaspoon of almond/vanilla extract
    •1 cup of canned pumpkin
    •As much chopped dark chocolate as you like!
    •Cooking spray
    Bake at 350 for 15-20 min and enjoy :) You could easily swap out the flour for gluten free or paleo friendly flour.

  5. mmmmmm, bits!

    (watch the youtube clip i just sent you and jenna...nadia G has a whole thing with "bits." not in that clip, just in, like, general.)

  6. Looks delicious! I would totally eat that! Could you come over and make it for me?

  7. OMG yum!! I wanna eat ALL of that in one sitting.

  8. I love chocolate. So much. It looks delish. Never would've thought of it.

  9. It's really nice, cooking and also eating, how much time it will take , keep in mind that i am not an expert.

  10. Yum! I need to make this! I love apples, and chocolate, and bacon. Haha

  11. This looks amazing. I have a party that I need to bring an appetizer to - this counts right?
