New Bacon Caramel Toffee/Bacon Chocolate Martini

As you know Bacon and Chocolate go so well together, and I've had several posts with recipes and chocolate products that include bacon. Just the other day I posted for International Bacon Day. Well yesterday I got an email from Vosges about their new Bacon Caramel Toffee. Vosges is famous for their Mo's Bacon Bar, well now it partners with crunchy caramel toffee. The Applewood smoked bacon and Alder wood smoked salt are embedded in their original crispy/buttery toffee. They then add a layer of 41% cacao milk chocolate on the top and bottom.

They call it addicting. Haven't tried it yet but I know it will be.

By the way, Vosges makes a Dark Chocolate Mo's Bacon Bar that is even better than the milk chocolate one... in my opinion.

Want to drink your chocolate and bacon? The Capitol Club in Seattle serves a mean Chocolate Bacon Martini! They use Godiva chocolate and bacon infused vodka and add a candied bacon garnish for a sweet finish. They also start with maple cured bacon and then candy it. My three favorites in one drink!

Okay, so I'm definitely going to have to check out this Chocolate and Bacon craze I keep reading about. I suppose it's all in steps.

I had my very first Chocolate Martini just this weekend at a place called The Powerhouse Eatery on my way to PA via I-80. The waitress suggested their "off the menu" version with peanut butter. Once she confirmed it tasted like a Resse's I was IN!!! Delicious!!!

Thanks for sharing Janet. Keep the Chocolate Bacon fires lit...

But the Reese's Pieces Martini sounds astounding. I'll have to find a recipe... or create one... for that. I'll check with Yum!

Hehehe...I was hoping you would think so. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!! Maybe you can come up with something by Sunday (13th) It's National Peanut Day & International Chocolate Day and, It's also the day Milton Hershey was born!!! (I won't be posting this year for either:(

Looks like I have my work cut out for me. Hope DrinkoftheWeek is available. Chocolate and peanuts... well I'll definitely put them together. The best chocolate martini I've ever had was made with Hershey's syrup!
