There are very few things in life better than bacon and chocolate. And since you can't actually eat the theme song to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I opted to combine the two next best things into a savory-sweet dynamo.

And while the duo does make a formidable marriage, the two strong flavors need a buffer. Rich, creamy peanut butter mellows out the smokiness of the bacon and offsets the sweetness of the chocolate. It's so good, we almost enjoyed them as much as Michelangelo loved that sausage and jelly bean pizza. ALMOST.
