  • Ingredients

  • Preparation

  • 6slices Maple Leaf® Original Bacon OR Lazy Maple Bacon
  • 1250g bag good quality bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1225g bag good quality pure white chocolate chips
  • 2tbsp toast walnuts or pecans, finely chopped
  • Lemon juice – optional
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay 6 slices of bacon flat. Cook on center rack of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until completely crisp and golden brown. Remove onto a cooling rack and blot bacon completely on both sides, set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile pour bittersweet chocolate into a microwave glass bowl and the white chocolate into a second bowl. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Microwave bittersweet chocolate for 35 to 40 second intervals stirring each time until chocolate has melted. Be careful not to overheat and burn the chocolate during the last interval – reduce time to ensure smooth melted chocolate.
  4. Using a rubber spatula pour the chocolate onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Using an off-set spatula spread the chocolate into the shape of a square being careful not to spread too thin.
  6. Repeat heating step for white chocolate.
  7. Spoon dollops of white chocolate all over the bittersweet chocolate. Drag your rubber spatula in a zig zag pattern across the chocolate
  8. On a clean surface chop cooled bacon into fine pieces and immediately sprinkle evenly over marbled chocolate. Sprinkle nuts over top and softly press down with the back of a clean spoon any toppings that are not adhered to the chocolate bark.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Once completely chilled use a butter knife and crack bark into desired number of pieces. Enjoy right away or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
