Bacon-Chocolate-Martini-2

Bacon Vodka Recipe:
For 375ml of Vodka (I’m loving Dripping Springs Vodka right now! Made in Texas!)
Fry up 3-4 pieces of thick-sliced bacon. I used Petit Jean Meats Hickory Smoked Bacon.
Drain on some paper towels until bacon is cool.
Take a mason jar or anything that you can seal.
Pour 375ml of Vodka into the Mason Jar.
Crumble the bacon and put into the vodka.
Seal and let brew for at least 3 days.
Strain mixture through a cheesecloth, coffee filter or super fine mesh strainer 2 times. (I used a coffee filter and worked like a charm.) You want to make sure you strain the fat out of the vodka as best as you can.
Store your bacon vodka in another mason jar after the fat is strained out. Enjoy!

Tailgating Recipe: Chicken Fried Chocolate Covered Bacon

This recipe is the PERFECT addition to your tailgating party. What could be better than Chicken Fried Chocolate Covered Bacon?? Add a dipping sauce like this Raspberry sauce and you are set!

This post is written in partnership with Petit Jean Meats. All stories and opinions and recipes are my own.

Y’all. I can’t even tell you how good this Chicken Fried Chocolate Covered Bacon recipe is. Like seriously. A little sweet. A little salty. OMG…is your mouth watering yet?? And it’s the perfect tailgating party food. Pick one up and enjoy by itself or with a dipping sauce. I paired mine with a raspberry dipping sauce and just yum. That’s all I got. You’ve got to try it!!

Ingredients
Thick Cut Bacon, cooked
1 pkg of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 of Heavy Cream
1 T. Butter
1/2 c. flour
1 egg
Canola Oil (enough to be 1-2″ of oil in your pan)
salt
Raspberry Jam

Chicken Fried Chocolate Covered Bacon

Directions
1. Cook your bacon (however much you want…chocolate sauce easily covers 12-15 pieces of bacon if not more). I cooked mine in the oven…400 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Let drain/cool on a paper towel. Get as much grease off as you can with paper towels.
2. Make your chocolate sauce. Dump the bag of chocolate chips into a small saucepan. Add the heavy cream and butter. Heat until melted and stir frequently! I made a make-shift double boiler (added another pan of water underneath my chocolate pan and heated the water which then heats the chocolate without burning it).
3. Once the chocolate has cooled a bit, dip your bacon in the chocolate and then set on a piece of wax or parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Once all the bacon is coated in chocolate and on the cookie sheet, place in freezer. Freeze for 30 minutes.
4. Prepare the chicken fried mixture. One pan for the flour and salt. One pan for the milk and egg. Heat your oil to 350 degrees. Make sure it doesn’t get any hotter than that.
5. Whisk the egg and milk together.
6. Mix the flour and salt together.
7. Once the 30 minutes has passed, get the bacon out of the freezer. Work quickly so the chocolate doesn’t begin to melt being in room temperature.
8. Coat the chocolate covered bacon in the egg mixture and then the flour mixture. Then repeat with the egg mixture and then again with the flour mixture. Slowly drop the bacon into the hot oil.
9. Fry until golden brown. (1-2 minutes max) I cooked 1 piece at a time, but depending on the space of your frying pan, don’t do any more than 4 at a time.
10. Drain on a plate covered in paper towels.
11. In a small saucepan, put 1/3 of the Raspberry Jam into the saucepan. Heat on low until liquid and reduced just a bit. Remove from heat, but continue stirring often until ready to serve.

ENJOY!

NOTES:
**Watch the heat of your oil. Do not let it go above 350 degrees. You will see some of the chocolate “spill” out into the oil and your oil will start to turn a chocolatey color. No worries. That’s normal.
**These would probably be really good with a spicy dark chocolate dipping sauce too!
**I used Petit Jean Meats Hickory Smoked Bacon.
**I used Ghiradelli Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips.
**I used Smuckers Seedless Raspberry Jam.

Looking for a new pair of heels to add to your closet? How about the perfect pair of Black Heels? I'm sharing 25 options for the Perfect Black Heel!

Y’all know my love for all things high heels. Like I have a crazy love for them. One of my hubs aunts said the other day that she can only bring a new pair of shoes home if she donates a pair she already has in her closet (her own personal rule). I kind of laughed out loud because how does one even do that??? Give away a pair of heels?? I mean…if you haven’t worn them in a decade or something, sure. But to get rid of a pair just so you can bring a new pair home. I think I’ve only given up heels when I know for a fact that I’ll never ever ever ever ever wear them or if they just don’t fit. That’s it. I’ve got a shoe addiction. LOL #sorrynotsorry #justsayin

So to help all my fellow shoe lovers, I’ve rounded up the perfect pair of black heels. And these are all under $50. You really can’t beat that! I mean…you need the perfect black heel in your life…I PROMISE!
