Get Your Sweet And Salty Fix With A Bacon Weave Choco Taco

We all know that chocolate covered bacon has been done before, as have bacon weave taco shells, but until now no one has combined them to make a Bacon Weave Choco Taco!

A Choco Taco -- for those of you who have never had the pleasure of trying one -- is one of the best desserts in the entire world. It consists of a waffle cone taco shell that's filled with vanilla ice cream and fudge and then topped with milk chocolate and peanuts. If you've never eaten one you're seriously missing out.

To create my Bacon Weave Choco Taco I started off by weaving a bacon square and then cooking it in my oven at 400° for about 15 minutes. I then placed an upside down bowl over it and traced around it with a knife, which left me with a nice circular bacon weave. I then draped my bacon weave over a couple kebab sticks, balanced those between two pint glasses and put it back in my oven for another ten minutes to finish cooking.

Once I had my completed bacon weave taco shell I filled it with vanilla ice cream and then put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes so it could harden back up. To complete the Bacon Weave Choco Taco I melted some milk chocolate and poured it over the top of my taco and then sprinkled pieces of peanuts over the melted chocolate. After another half hour in the freezer the chocolate was hardened and my taco was ready to eat!

Normally when I have an idea for something like this the end result doesn't quite turn out the way that I pictured it in my head, but with this Bacon Weave Choco Taco I couldn't have been happier with the results. It was absolutely perfect, not only in terms of looks, but taste-wise as well. If you're a fan of sweet and salty food combinations like I am, then this is pretty much the perfect dessert for you!
