Easy Keto Recipe – Chocolate Covered Bacon

It is true that the keto diet requires a complete decrease in carbs intake, but you can still enjoy some of your favorite foods. The thing about the keto diet is to stop the carbs intake and focus on consuming fats-rich foods. When your body gets used to the process, it will start using fats as a source of energy instead of carbs as usual.
This will get you to the phase of ketosis where your body constantly burns fats. The keto diet can help you burn those extra pounds like no other diet.

Also, it is perfect for the ketogenic diet because it is low in carbs, low in sugar, and contains healthy fats that your body will burn as fuel for energy later on.
- ¼ cup of cocoa powder
- ½ melted coconut oil
- ½ pound pork or turkey bacon (cooked and drained)
- 5 tablespoons of powdered sweetener
- Himalayan pink salt
If your bacon isn’t cooked, make sure to cook it and drain it in order to get rid of the unnecessary grease. After that, you need to thoroughly mix the cocoa powder, the powdered sweetener, and coconut oil. The next step is to take the chocolate and apply it into a shallow bowl before dipping the bacon slices into it. You can add the pieces on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
You want your chocolate to be firm, so you need to let it cool down in the refrigerator at least for 10 minutes. Furthermore, dip the firm chocolate in chocolate once again before adding the Himalayan pink salt. Place it in your fridge once again for 10 minutes. Enjoy your keto snack and if you have leftovers, save them in a container in your freezer.
