How to Make Chocolate-Dipped Bacon Roses

That’s right. These happened in our house today. There are just some times that you need to tell that special someone in your life that you love them more than bacon.

The first thing you need to do is to preheat your oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with foil, and put a rack on top of that. Next, begin to roll your bacon. I rolled them so the fatty side was on the bottom. The tighter it is, the better it will look. Stick toothpicks though the bottom of the roses to hold them together, and also to keep them from falling over.

Bake them for about 20-25 minutes. Take them out, and blot them on paper towel to remove any extra grease.

Prepare your roses by popping the flower petals off of them stem. Keep the green flower base, because that will hold your bacon rose.

Next, melt some chocolate. I used to light chocolate melting wafers. For these ten roses, it only took about a quarter cup of wafers.  Dip the ends of your roses in the chocolate. I then placed them on a sheet of parchment paper to let the chocolate set slightly, for about two minutes. Then I pushed them onto the ends of the stems. Delicious!
