As the weather continues to get colder here on the East coast, finding ways to stay warm is my top priority. My friend, knowing that I love to make hot drinks sent this article to me, and we both agreed that we had to try the Bacon Hot Chocolate. I LOVE bacon, seriously give me anything with bacon and I’ll eat it! I’m just mad I didn’t come up with this recipe. It’s extremely decadent and the flavors are so rich it will most certainly have you forgetting it’s below 20˚.


  • 4 Thick slices of bacon
  • 1 / 2 teaspoon corn star
  • 1 / 4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 4 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces bourbon (instead of Frangelico I only used bourbon)


  1. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium-low until it’s crispy (not burned) Transfer bacon to paper towel-lined plate to dry. Don’t throw away the fat from the skillet – place it aside.
  2. In medium saucepan, stir cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix in the bacon fat, corn starch, milk, and the chocolate chips over medium. Whisk the ingredients together until the chocolate is melted.
  3. Add the bourbon. Then pour into individual cups with a strip of the crispy bacon. Serve while it’s hot.
