Servings 2 cups


  • 14 oz dark chocolate about 2 cups; bittersweet or semi-sweet is fine
  • 4 pieces hickory smoked bacon
  • 1/2 tsp. course smoked salt I use Alderwood smoked salt


  • Place parchment paper into a 9x13" baking pan.

  • Finely chop bacon and set aside.
  • Roughly chop dark chocolate and set aside 1/3 of chocolate.
  • Place 2/3 of chocolate in double-boiler over medium-low heat.  Stir frequently until chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat. Add remaining 1/3 of chocolate and stir continuously until all of the chocolate has melted.
  • Test temperature of chocolate with your finger.  Chocolate should feel neutral (not warm).  If chocolate is still warm, continue stirring until chocolate feels neutral in temperate.
  • Stir in chopped bacon and smoked salt.  Pour into parchment-lined baking pan and spread out evenly.
  • Place pan in refrigerator for approximately 1 hour.  Bark should be completely set.
