    Default Geek's Chocolate Covered Pig Candy

    So, I'm calling this a Geek's recipe, but I'm sure someone here has done this. I'll take away the name if I offend anyone.

    I've always thought chocolate and pig candy would go well together. So I gave it a shot tonight. Here's my recipe for pig candy, and the additional process of coating in chocolate.

    Pig Candy Recipe:
    2 cups brown sugar
    2 tsp fresh CBP
    2 tsp cinnamon
    2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 lb apple or maple flavored bacon

    Mix the ingredients by hand and break up the clumps. Take the bacon and slice into thirds. One piece at a time, hand pack as much of the sugar base to both sides of the bacon. Lay each slice on a cooling rack. Place the rack over a cake pan. Sprinkle on more of the sugar base as desired.

    Cook at 375 for 17 minutes (I do this for both my drum and my oven. Cook until the sugar is melted well and bubbly).

    Remove from the oven and carefully remove each piece from the cooling rack. Place on a piece of foil. Place the foil in the ice box for about 3-5 minutes, just until mostly cool.

    Adding chocolate:
    In a double broiler melt 1/2 package of chocolate almond bark. Coat both sides of the candied bacon one at a time. Each time pick the bacon up out of the chocolate and gently scrap excess chocolate. Remember, this is a bacon recipe. The chocolate is just an enhancer. Place each slice back onto the foil and place in the ice box until the chocolate sets.

    Here's the gooey center of my chocolate pig candy. Enjoy.

    That looks GREAT!! I know a whole bunch of gals who would kill for that - literally I think. You did a quality upgrade to an already great product Josh.

    It should be a sticky ... get it sticky . Okay it wasn't funny, but it should be.

    How could one maybe incorporate peanut butter into that?

    I mean, could it be done?

    I'm sure you could. After thepig candy cools, I'd say you could spoon on the peanut butter. Put it back in the icebox for the PB to setup. Then dip in chocolate.

    Maybe next we could dip it in pancake mix and deep fat fry it.
