“From the in-flight magazine on Southwest Airlines. I used Ghiradelli 60% chocolate chips, Nestle white chips, and nestle semi-sweet chips. The oil in the coating seems weird and is hard to mix in but the end result was right for coating. The white chips were a mistake, didn't firm up. Because the white is runny, these have to stay in the freezer. I also used raw almonds, chopped, and toasted in the pan I cooked the bacon in. Kind of weird but definitely man-candy. Everything is better with bacon!”
