You are going to want to try this!  Brooklyn Maple, with Kentucky Legend, joined us this morning for our weekly What's Cookin'? segment with a recipe for Spicy Mayan Bacon. Yes!  It's covered in chocolate, is delicious and will curl your toes!


1 pkg (20 oz) Kentucky Legend Jalapeno Bacon

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 tbsp shortening

1/2 tsp (ancho chili powder

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch cayenne pepper

1/4 cup pepitas



Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Weave bacon onto wooden skewers; arrange on foil-lined baking sheet fitted with wire rack. Bake, turning once, for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp. Transfer to paper towel–lined plate; let cool completely.

In microwavable bowl, combine chocolate and shortening; microwave on High, in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth. Stir in chili powder, cinnamon and cayenne until well combined.

Position bacon skewers over melted chocolate mixture; drizzle chocolate mixture over bacon, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Transfer to parchment paper–lined tray. Sprinkle with pepitas. Let stand until set.
