Bacon wrapped Snickers

Why not?

Started with two Snickers bars that had been in the freezer for 24+ hours



Wrapped with bacon that had been precooked for a few minutes and put in the refrigerator to cool



On the egg, raised direct 375-400*



Cooked for about 15 minutes, turning a couple of times to get the bacon crisp on all sides



Pulled and let cool for 5 minutes before eating. All-in-all, not too bad! The chocolate had melted (but was held in by the bacon) and the nougat, caramel and peanuts was intact, warm and delicious!

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I said that because Mrs. TOTN likes her bacon very crisp; so, see was not overly impressed with the final product. These could probably have been cooked another 5 minutes to get the bacon more done.

    Sounds fantastic.  Based on what you wrote, perhaps precook the bacon a bit more as well?  

    For the cook, is it a "do over" or a "once and done, do not need to do that again"?

    Gotcha boss man. I don't mind a little chew to the fat but I think In this application crispy would be more better.

    I've still got 2 more snickers bars in the freezer.  =)

    I had intended to use the smaller, bite-sized bars but, all I could find at the store where the size I used and the ones that are just little cubes (for lack of a better way to describe them). The larger bars took three pieces of bacon to wrap (one length-wise with two more pieces spiraled over that). I think the smaller bars could be done with less bacon; that might crisp up better.

    Very impressive - looks like something I'd see at the CNE!

    Thanks! More likely fried Snickers, which we do from time to time, at the CNE. I wanted to see if it would work on the egg.

    We have dipped bacon into chocolate, which is great, but not bacon wrapped snickers. That looks good!

    Whoa. Nicely done! Well, I know what candy I will be buying for Halloween this year.  If I am going to get stuck with so much left over candy, I may as well wrap it in bacon and have at it. Thanks for sharing.

    That is pretty much maximum overdrive on both the sweet and salty front. I have used Snickers or Caramilk bars in ABT's, filled the pepper half with the candy bar and wrapped with bacon, dusted with PH or some sugar based rub. A cheapy version of Henapple's MPDs.

    "The bacon on my bacon wrapped frozen snickers bars wasn't quite crispy enough"

    We now have the precise definition to "first world problem".

    Well done, looks great, and hats off for trying it!

    I here ya Tiger! I did explain above that I rated these "not too bad" as a result of Mrs. TOTN's feedback. I always try to give due consideration to her opinion. For me they were f***ing delicious!
