You should send this to every leader of every country in the world and sign it from President Obama and I guarantee world peace.

Ha I was about to suggest something similar... especially since we don't know what they cooked the bacon in or what's in the chocolate. I'll be using some sugar-free Baker's chocolate. How could you screw up a combo like this?!

First I made chocolate covered bacon (bakers choc. over thick-cut organic uncured bacon)...

omg!-the-perfect-paleo-gift:-dark-chocolat-covered-bacon!-have-you-tried-this??

Then I tried coconut butter (let's do organic brand "coconut cream")...

omg!-the-perfect-paleo-gift:-dark-chocolat-covered-bacon!-have-you-tried-this??

Then decided why not both?

omg!-the-perfect-paleo-gift:-dark-chocolat-covered-bacon!-have-you-tried-this??

Making this stuff at home only requires the ability to boil water (for melting chocolate and coconut butter) and frying up some bacon, so I couldn't imagine paying someone else to do it for me, but I can see how the nice, professionally boxed chocolate-covered bacon would make a great gift, especially if you wanted to send it to a friend or relative.

(recipes here, check "bacon - aka 'meat candy' section)

I was intensely disappointed with the Vosges dark chocolate and bacon bar -- the chocolate was really not up to their standard and the bacon bits in it just tasted like bland, mealy, stale bacon. Ick.

But I would try this stuff if I still ate sugared chocolates.

Funny that they advise eating it within 20 days -- frankly, neither bacon nor chocolate sits around my house that long.

I bought some for the novelty but was not so enamored that I needed to buy it again.

I'm sure a homemade version with good quality chocolate and bacon would be awesome and makes a great stocking stuffer.

I've made something like this, using freshly fried bacon and baker's chocolate, no sweetener. It was tasty, but very intensely so, and I'm not sure I really liked the two tastes together. I could only eat about 1.5 pieces before it was too much.
