Your dreams have come true – candy that’s made with sweetened peanut butter and bacon and then dipped in chocolate. Oh, my.
Makes about 2 dozen
1. Process first 3 ingredients and 6 bacon slices in a food processor 20 to 30 seconds or until finely ground. Stir together bacon mixture and peanut butter in a small bowl until smooth. Cover and chill 2 hours.
2. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of bacon mixture into 3/4-inch balls. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; chill 1 hour.
3. Chop remaining 2 bacon slices. Microwave chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. Dip chilled bacon balls into chocolate. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle tops with bacon. Chill 30 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
