I created this chocolate after eating a burger called the Elvis that had bacon and peanut butter on it. Keep any leftovers in the fridge.
SO WRONG!!!!! BUT SOOOO GOOD!!!! I sprinkled some crumbled bacon on top of half and kosher salt (sparingly) on the other half before the chocolate hardened, added a little more crunch and garnish. Used thick cut bacon, and cooked it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 25 mins. to make a soft yet crispy bacon. Also used nutella on some instead of peanut butter, even more wrong. Great recipe, I love bacon. - 05 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Prepared these for the Recipe Group and our guests enjoyed them this evening after dinner. I didn't have the time or patience for the candy thermometer so I purchased Dolci Microwave Hard Dark Choc Shell Coating. It worked great! I also crumbled the bacon. This eliminated the toothpick and made it easier for me. I spread the PB on the banana, dipped it in the crumbled bacon, pressed lightly, and then drizzled the chocolate over the top and smoothed with a spoon around the sides. Still a little messy but quick and easy. Before the chocolate set-up, I sprinkled Sea Salt, Banana Chips or crumbled bacon on each. This was a fun and different recipe and we were pleasantly surprised with the sweet/smokey/salty flavor. I will make these again.

I made these for the recipe group this week. I will go ahead and say...this was very messy for me and mine looked nothing like the picture. However, I think that should be attributed to my inexperience rather than the recipe. I loved this combo, though- definitely a little bizarre, but sinfully yummy. One error I made was making the bacon too crispy- I disklike soggy fatty bacon but with as crisp as it was it fell apart when I tried to skewer it to the banana. Honestly, in the future...only when I am home alone, of course...I may just make a sort-of banana split out of it and call it good. Anyway, a pleasantly surprising little snack that has all of my favorite foods in one- peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon. Thanks for sharing! - 16 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
