Number of Servings: 36
Prep: 20 min | Bake: 20 min at 375°

1 16-oz. package thick-sliced bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
4 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts, almonds, and/or cashews

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two 15x10x1-inch baking pans or shallow roasting pans with parchment paper. Arrange bacon pieces in a single layer in the prepared baking pans. Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp. Transfer bacon to wire racks; cool (up to 2 hours).

2. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In a small heavy saucepan, cook and stir chocolate over low heat until melted. Dip bacon pieces halfway into chocolate, letting excess drip off. Place on the prepared baking sheet. While still warm, sprinkle with nuts.

3. Chill until chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
