Why I Love This Recipe

From the Sauce du Jour Kitchen

For the Bacon Cooking Class - 109

Just kill me now! Chocolate, whiskey, bacon, maple, and cream!

For this class I knew it had to be bacon and chocolate, but the maple whiskey was entirely an accident. (Like a "you-got-chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter" kind of accident.)

I have been making this Chocolate Mousse FOR-EV-VER and then I spilled some Maple Crown Royal whiskey in it (but that's another story) and then because it was a BACON class, well the rest is history....and history should not be re-written!

1 cup wine — for the cook
12 oz. best quality semi sweet chocolate chips

FOR THE MOUSSE


Combine chocolate, sugar, and eggs in a blender and blend until combined. Add hot milk and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Stir in finely chopped bacon.

With an electric mixer, Whip the crème and sugar until thick. Add syrup, whiskey and extracts and whip to desired thickness. Serve on Mousse.
