Keto Chocolate-Covered Bacon Recipe

Last Update: September 27, 2022

What are keto dessert dreams made of? How about bacon—dipped in chocolate. This sweet and savory pairing is made with pantry ingredients you probably keep handy. A touch of coconut oil helps the chocolate harden; then it’s ready to decorate with all your favorite crunchy toppings (we’re partial to nuts like almonds and pistachios). Serve it as the dessert course at your next keto-themed dinner party to really wow your guests.

Keto Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Yield: 12 slices
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the bacon:
1 pound (12 slices) Thrive Market Sugar-Free Pastured Bacon
½ bag (4 ½ ounces) Baking Chips, Dark Chocolate
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

For the toppings:
Thrive Market Organic Shredded Coconut
Thrive Market Organic Raw Almonds, roasted and chopped
Thrive Market Organic Roasted and Salted Pistachios, shelled and chopped
Flaky sea salt


Preheat oven to 425°F and line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Arrange bacon strips flat on tray and roast until crisp, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let the bacon cool while you prep the chocolate.

Make a double boiler by filling a small saucepan with 2 inches of water and place a heatproof bowl over the top. Add chocolate and coconut oil; stir until chocolate melts.

Place bacon strips on a wire rack and spread a layer of chocolate over the top using a small spatula. Sprinkle with assorted toppings before the chocolate sets. Don’t expect too many leftovers, but if you do have some extra, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
