Cocoa Crisp Bacon Appetizer

Cocoa Crisp Bacon Appetizer

For those who love the idea of bacon and chocolate, this is a must try recipe.

¾ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cocoa powder
½ tsp. ground chipotle chili pepper seasoning
2 lb. thick cut bacon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking racks inside rimmed cookie sheets lined with foil. Whisk together brown sugar, cocoa powder and chipotle season until well combined. Pour into shallow plate.
Cut the bacon into thirds crosswise. Press one side of each bacon piece into the brown sugar mixture to coat with a thin layer of the spiced sugar, brushing off any excess. Arrange on racks in prepared baking pans, sugar side up, close together put not touching.
Bake for 45-60 minutes until dark brown but not burnt. Keep an eye on it as oven temps vary. Let cool completely before serving.
