So a piece of chocolate and bacon walk into a bar...

If you've listened to Blockhead Radio at all in the past week or so you have heard us talk about chocolate covered bacon. Now this is apparently NOT a new phenomenon judging from the article I found online about a shop that sells it! I cannot honestly remember how we started talking about it, I know witchy and the Morning Brew Ha Ha was involved....that's all I remember, because mornings are a blur of spitting coffee on my screen and Internet surfing.

But I digress. As usual.

Anyhoo, so we've talked about it and obviously people do eat it so I decided that in honor of the BRAND NEW SHOW coming on Blockhead Radio starring the lovely James aka Closet Creature, or Birdy's Technical Support, I would make some of said delicacy. James's new show will indeed be titled "Chocolate Covered Bacon". You can catch his first show on April 30th at 6pm Eastern for all things yummy, indie and awesome! Hear it ONLY on Blockhead Radio!

So, I digress again.

I am not really a risky person, and I figured, I like chocolate, I like bacon...what can it hurt? (other than my digestive tract...)

Now mind you, I eat turkey bacon, so I'm not sure if that matters, or I lose points for that... by the way, this better qualify as stalker points...Are you the biggest stalker?

So, I melted some chocolate chips, nuked my turkey bacon and ever so beautifully slathered the chocolate on the bacon (it's rather hard to DIP bacon...I might add.) Now my dilemma was this, traditionally when one dips items in chocolate they put them in the fridge to cool and let the chocolate harden. I was thinking this may not be quite so tasty with bacon. So I decided to let it 'set' on the counter for just a few minutes. I'm not sure the life expectancy of bacon post nuking so I thought I'd best go ahead with room temp chocolate!

And I did it! I ate it! No, I did not eat all three pieces, but I ate one full piece and it was...

actually...

NOT THAT BAD!! I would not perhaps choose this as a traditional breakfast dish but I can see why you would eat it!! I mean hey, at least when I'm on my deathbed I can say, "I never climbed Mount Everest, I never saw the Eiffel Tower, and I never swam in the Pacific Ocean..but I ate chocolate covered bacon."

So, I have compiled a little medley here for you, proof I did partake of the chocolately delicacy...
Enjoy, feel free to share with the world that there really is an idiot brave enough to eat chocolate covered bacon!



And now, the debut performance
