Chocolate Coated Bacon

3. Chocolate Coated Bacon Recipe

Chocolate coated bacon is crisply cooked bacon; coated with milk, white, or dark chocolate. The crispy savory bacon and the sweetness of the chocolate are heavenly. I really like the black peppered bacon dipped in the white chocolate; sprinkle with sea salt? Try a sprinkle of sea salt or chopped nuts—it is truly unique!

I dare you to give it a try; put it in a tin and give it to a friend!


  • 12 slices thick-cut, about 1 pound
  • 12 wooden skewers, 12-inch
  • 6 ounces white candy coating, chopped
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Thread each strip of the bacon onto a wooden skewer.
  3. Place the bacon on a baking rack in a large baking pan.
  4. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until crisp.
  5. Cool on paper towels completely.
  6. Melt the white candy coating in the microwave in a bowl; stir until melted.
  7. Combine the milk chocolate chips and the shortening in a bowl; melt in the microwave, stir until melted.
  8. Coat the bacon using a pastry brush on both sides with the melted coatings.
  9. Top each strip of bacon with the desired toppings.
  10. Place the bacon strips on the waxed paper.
  11. Refrigerate until the chocolate is hard. Store the leftover in the refrigerator.
  12. Makes 12 slices of chocolate-covered bacon.

Tips From Margie Lynn

- Bacon may be cooked without skewers if you prefer.

- Bacon also can be dipped in the chocolate completely or halfway.

- Superb toppings are sea or kosher salt, toasted coconut, coarse ground black pepper, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, finely chopped pistachio or almond or any type of nut you desire.

- Make sure the bacon is crisp, chewy bacon and chocolate do not work.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Brownies

4. Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe

Brownies are always popular as snacks and desserts. Peanut butter and chocolate make a delicious combination, especially in brownie form. Bar cookies are so easy and fast to make; bake up a batch for the family or take to a family gathering or potluck. I like making a batch to freeze for unexpected occasions!


  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 12-ounces package chocolate chip


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl; combine the peanut butter, butter and brown, and white sugar; beat until creamy.
  3. Gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine in a small bowl; the flour, baking powder, and salt; blend into the peanut butter mixture.
  5. Spread into a greased 13-inch x 9-inch x 2-inch baking pan.
  6. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the brownie batter.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Tip From Margie Lynn

This recipe may be baked in a large size pizza pan to achieve a cookie effect. Do not spread dough completely to the edges. Stay about 1-inch from the edges since dough rises as it bakes.

 Chocolate Chip Cookies

6. Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

We all love chocolate chip cookies! To bake fresh cookies on short notice, keep a supply of the cookie dough in the freezer. When you need some fresh cookies for the company or just for your cravings, thaw the cookie dough enough so you can spoon it out to bake.

This scrumptious cookie dough or the baked cookies will keep up to 9 months in the freezer. How neat is that, chocolate chip cookies at our fingertips anytime we want them!


  • 2/3 cups shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cups butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, or any nut you desire
  • 1-12 ounces package semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like milk chocolate.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl; add the shortening, butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract; mix well.
  3. Blend in the flour, baking soda, and salt. (For a softer, rounder cookie, add ½ cup flour)
  4. Add the nuts and chocolate chips; mix well.
  5. Drop heaping teaspoonful of the dough on an ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until light brown.
  7. Cool a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet.

Tip From Margie Lynn

You can really put any flavor chips or chunk you desire in this cookie mix. You could even put more than one kind!

      I’d like to test the wackiness of the chocolate wacky cake. I one made a chocolate cake that had tomato sauce in it and it was actually good.
