Here in St. Louis we love our food especially when sweet and salty collide into something uniquely delicious. I picked up Farmland Applewood Smoked Bacon at my local Schnucks grocery store along with a couple other ingredients to create this recipe. When dreaming up this recipe I knew I needed premium bacon. Obvious choice was Farmland Bacon. Cook’s Illustrated #1 Highly Recommended Bacon, #2 Best Bacon by Bon Appétit, and a Top 5 Bacon Known to Man by Men’s Health, in the past.

Chocolate, Bacon, and Puff Pastry! What could go wrong? NOTHING! Not with the sweetness of hand-trimmed bacon that is slow smoked over real Applewood chips for maximum flavor. Then the bacon is wrapped around a puff pastry slathered full of hazelnut chocolate spread. Plus Farmland Applewood Smoked Bacon has no added hormones, artificial flavors or colors.

Recipe Tips

Use an icing spreader to spread the hazelnut chocolate spread onto the puff pastry.

Use a pizza cutter to cut the puff pastry into strips.

You may have leftover bacon strips. I had 6 strips of bacon leftover (3 full slices of bacon).

Keep a towel nearby your hands will get a little messy when twisting and wrapping the bacon.

Layout the strips of Farmland Applewood Smoked Bacon vertically. Lay the tip of the puff pastry horizontally on top of the bacon. Starting at the top pinch bacon and puff pastry together then roll the twist down the bacon. This will wrap the bacon perfectly around the puff pastry twist.
