Beer Candied Bacon Bark

  • 6 strips thick sliced bacon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbs stout beer
  • pinch cayenne
  • 10.5 wt oz dark chocolate (72% cacao content)
  • ¼ cup pale ale beer
  • 1/3 cup smoked almonds
  • Preheat oven the 350.
  • In a sauce pan over medium high heat, bring the brown sugar, stout and cayenne to boil, boil for one minute.
  • Place the bacon on a wire rack over a baking sheet. Brush the bacon on each side with sugar mixture.
  • Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, flip, re-brush with sugar mixture, bake for ten more minutes until bacon is a dark brown. Remove from oven, allow to cool. Bacon will harden as it cools. Chop the bacon once it has cooled.
  • In the top of a double boiler over gently simmering water add half the chocolate, make sure the heat isn’t too high or the chocolate will seize. Stir constantly until chocolate is almost melted. Slowly stir in the beer until well combined. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining chocolate until melted and well combined. Stir in the smoked almonds.
  • Pour chocolate onto a baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle with chopped bacon. Chill until set. Break into pieces.
