Chocolate Covered Bacon Candy

Prep time: 10min
Cook time: 20min
Yields around 36 pieces of bacon (or however you choose to cut your 4 bacon pieces) 

6oz 100% Unsweetened Chocolate (Bakers or Ghirardelli) 
1T Coconut Oil 
2-4T Honey (Gauge to your desired sweetness) 
4 Slices of Thick Applewood Smoked Bacon 

Cut your bacon into slices (I used kitchen shears - it made this a lot faster. I washed them in the dishwasher afterwards.)  Place evenly on foil-lined baking sheet.  Place pan in a cold oven, do NOT preheat. Turn to 400F. Cook for 20min and remove from oven.  Cool the bacon prior to dipping in the chocolate.  Once bacon is cooled, begin melting your chocolate in a small sauce pan under low heat. Add coconut oil and stir on low heat until it is melted. Once melted, add your honey to your desired sweetness and remove from heat so that your chocolate does not burn. Line a pan that will fit in your freezer (check this!!) with parchment paper.   Dip your pieces of bacon one by one in the chocolate and set on the parchment paper. (I used my fingers, but you can use tongs or a fork as well) Freeze until chocolate solidifies and then remove from parchment and store in frig until consumed. Enjoy!
