Bacon Chocolate Roses


250g Henderson’s Middle Bacon
¼ cup manuka honey

2 tbsp brown sugar

Cracked black pepper

½ cup dark chocolate chips


Step 1

Preheat oven to 240°C. Roll up each strip of bacon, with the pink, meaty part of the bacon on top. Secure the roll with a toothpick then add a second toothpick to form an X (this will create a little frame to help your ‘roses’ sit upright)

Step 2

Place a wire rack on top of a large baking sheet, then place bacon roses on top, about 3cm apart.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together honey, brown sugar, and a good amount of black pepper. Brush mixture onto each bacon rose.

Step 4
Bake until bacon is a deep red and the outer edges are crispy, 40 to 45 minutes.

Step 5

Once the roses are cooled completely, take out the toothpicks and then dip the bottoms in chocolate. Allow chocolate to set before serving.
