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:


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.
