I love eating these truffles the day after I make them, after the full flavor of the bacon comes through. —Sylvia Shankle, Munhall, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) dark chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cooked and finely chopped
  • COATING:
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1-3/4 cups chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

Place dark chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, heat butter and cream just to simmering. Pour over chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in bacon. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate, covered, 1-1/2 hours or until firm enough to shape.
For coating, place baking chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over baking chips; stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in maple flavoring. Cool completely, stirring occasionally, about 1-1/2 hours.
Shape dark chocolate mixture into 1-in. balls. Dip truffles in maple mixture; allow excess to drip off. Roll in pecans; place on a waxed paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Refrigerate until set. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
