In a perfect world there would be a sweet indulgent treat that would take almost no skill, and almost no time to make. This treat would make people really happy and have them begging you to make more, since there's no way it's easy enough for just about anybody to make. Ladies and gentlemen, I have such a recipe. This recipe takes little effort, almost no skill, and everybody I took these to demanded more. One person even stole the extras to take home to his family.
After you've cut the bacon, lay it out on your baking tray that is lined with the parchment paper or silicon tray liners (I prefer the tray liners myself). Then cover the bacon with brown sugar, you want your bacon to have a good solid layer of brown sugar because it's going to melt, and a bunch of it will run off. Then sprinkle on a little cinnamon, this is totally optional, and you can put on as much as you like. Heat your over to 350, and once it's heated put in the tray with the bacon and brown sugar.
When you take the chocolate chips out of the microwave you might notice that they don't look very different, that's OK. You'll also notice that the bowl they're in is pretty hot, and some of the chips at the bottom are melted. Quickly stir your chocolate chips, after a minute or so you'll notice that your chocolate chips are melting pretty well. Keep stirring and don't be fooled about putting the chocolate chips back in the microwave. This technique tempers the chocolate perfectly for this recipe.
After you bacon is decorated to your liking, let it set for about 30 minutes, then refrigerate. If you really like what you're seeing, you can pretty much eat these immediately after you pour the chocolate on them, but the chocolate will be pretty gooey at this point, not that that's a bad thing. If you let them set in your fridge overnight, they'll be much easier to transport, and a little easier to eat. So there you go, simple chocolate covered candied bacon.
