Benjamin’s Steakhouse Chocolate-Covered Canadian Bacon for the Holidays

Chocolate-Covered Canadian Bacon for the Holidays


This holiday season, impress your guests with a unique recipe that is sweet, smoky and spicy- all in one! It’s a twist on one of my favorite recipes- chocolate covered Canadian bacon- but with cinnamon and cayenne pepper to add a bit of a holiday twist. It’s quite heavy- so 2 slices serves up to 4 guests when sliced, and it can be served as either a snack, appetizer or even dessert!

Bon appétit!

Chocolate-covered Canadian Bacon
With Cinnamon and Cayenne Pepper
(Serves 2-4)

2 slices of extra-thick Canadian Bacon
1 cups of melted chocolate (made with Semi-sweet chocolate morsels)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Powdered sugar, to top

1) In a double-broiler, melt chocolate morsels. If you do not have a double broiler, simply boil water in a medium-sized pot, then place the chocolate morsels into a smaller sauce pan and place it in the larger pan to melt.

2) Stir in cinnamon and cayenne pepper

3) Place Canadian bacon in a rack and broil for about 3 minutes on each side.

4) Remove Bacon from broiler and pat with a paper towel to remove the oil.

5) With a spoon, coat both sides of the Canadian Bacon with chocolate mixture.

6) Place in a lightly buttered pan, and add to broiler for about a minute.

7) Remove, sprinkle with powdered sugar, slice and enjoy!
