Six Degrees of Chocolate Bacon

A few weeks ago, Computer Geek, Weston, and I traveled out of town to eat at Denny's. It's about thirty minutes away so we make the trip only once every year or two.

After our typical lunch of sandwiches and fries, I set my eye upon the dessert menu. Was I hungry? Is hunger ever a prerequisite for dessert?

My typical dessert choices fall in the ice cream/fudge/cheesecake realm. This day, for some crazy reason, I was ready for something new. Something like ice cream. And fudge. And caramel.


What? Bacon is now a dessert item? I fell for it like a bungee jumper at the Victoria Falls Bridge.

Yes, that is BACON gracing the top of that ice cream. Caramel-drizzled bacon.
I'm getting weak just looking at it

If you've never tried bacon as a dessert item, I encourage you to be brave. The bite of salty bacon combined with the smooth sweetness of fudge brownie and ice cream is sure to make you scoff at Abercrombie and Fitch employees. Who needs to shop at the Mecca for the physically elite when you can partake of this divine creation? Think Peanut Buster Parfait. Think Mr. Goodbar. Think Salted Nut Roll.

I'm thinking. Thinking it just may be worth another thirty minute drive.


  1. Salted Nut Roll is a favorite here. So is bacon but I rarely eat it because....well, it's really just lard. Recently I saw on a menu, Snicker's Pie. I did so want to try it but I really was stuffed from my dinner. Maybe next time.

    1. I love Salted Nut Rolls too! Paydays are my favorite though. When we buy bacon for home use we usually buy turkey bacon. I don't know if it's really any better for you, but at least I don't gag on fat the way I sometimes do with regular bacon.

  2. Sounds amazing! I would so love to try some. The combination is mouth watering.

  3. It is really good. I didn't regret it one bit! :)

  4. Randi: I love bacon but I'm not sure I would do this. Shannon might. She loves both ice cream and bacon. And I prefer Bing bars over Salted Nut rolls, but those are good too.

    1. You'll have to let me know if Shannon tries it. I LOVE Bings! They don't have them in Utah so when my big sis went to Iowa a few weeks ago she mailed some to me. I was in heaven! I like them refrigerated.

    2. Yes, much like my Reese's Peanut butter cups. Mom used to make me homemade Bings and send them to me when I was in Japan. I didn't share. Lol.


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
