Chocolate-Covered Candied Bacon

Whether you fry it on the stove, bake it in the oven, or “air-fry” it in your air-fryer, achieving a crispy, salty and tasty strip of bacon is always the goal. With the addition of brown sugar and chocolate, the bacon strip has reached pure perfection. These candied bacon strips form a glossy coat when it’s topped and baked with sugar and lightly seasoned with a pinch of cayenne pepper for a faint, spicy kick. The combination of the semisweet chocolate chunks and coconut oil allows the chocolate to melt smoothly, making it easy for the mixture to adhere to the candied bacon. When the chocolate has mostly setup, it’s finished with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes that enhances the bacon's natural salinity.
