Maple Bacon Chocolate Bark
Lane's Maple Pecan Rub
600g Baking chocolate chips
Roughly chopped Pistachios (shelled)
4 Rashers of bacon
Roasted pecans, roughly chopped
Sprinkle bacon with Lane's Maple pecan rub and a good amount of brown sugar
place under a medium grill for around 15mins or untill the bacon is well cooked.
Chop bacon into peices and set aside
Place a heatproof bowl (stainless steel or tempered glass) on top of a slightly smaller pot half filled with water (so the bowl sits above the rim)
Bring the water to a simmer then remove from the heat
Place your chocolate chips into the bowl and let the chocolate sit until it is melted. Stir occasionally to check consistency. You don't want the chocolate to get too hot in this process or it will begin to cook and clump up.
Poor the chocolate onto a baking tray lined with waxed baking paper.
Spread out until it is roughly 5mm thick. Don't worry about being too neat, it will add to the rustic 'bark' look
sprinkle with pecans and pistachios, and bacon peices
We also added a drizzle of melted caramilk on top.
Place in the fridge for 10/15 mins then break into rough chunks.
Package these up and give them away as gifts for any unexpected guests or, enjoy with a glass of nice whiskey on christmas eve (we highly recommend this)
