Ingredients
  1. 1 pound thick cut bacon
  2. roughly 6 oz unsalted butter, about 3/4 cup
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 5 tablespoons water
  5. 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
  2. Arrange bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until very crisp. When fully crisp, remove slices to a paper towel lined plate to soak up any excess grease.
  3. Measure the bacon grease in ounces (for me it was 2 oz) and pour into a thick pot. Add enough butter to make 8 oz.
  4. Arrange the 3/4 of the bacon strips into an oval about 8x14 inches on a greased sheet of aluminum foil. Crumble the remaining bacon and set aside.
  5. Cook the butter, bacon grease, sugar, and water in a heavy saucepan, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer says it has reached the hard crack stage. Remove from heat immediately and pour over bacon strips.
  6. Allow to sit for five minutes and spread chocolate chips over the surface of the warm toffee.
  7. When melted use a knife to spread the melted chocolate across the top of the toffee. Garnish with crumbled bacon.
  8. Allow the toffee to sit until the chocolate has set.
  9. When set, use a large knife to cut the toffee into pieces.
