My cousin loves bacon. So I thought I’d surprise her NOT by cooking with bacon, but instead making something sweet.

Vosges does amazing things with chocolate, a visit to the Vosges Beverly Hills flagship store and you’re whisked away to a chocolate paradise. Their Vosges Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar is one of their signature products. Afraid of the bacon chocolate combo? I don’t blame you, but swirled into a nice vanilla ice cream…? ALL GOOD.

2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups whole milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup white sugar
1 (3oz) Vosges Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar

Chop up the bacon bar and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream, milk and vanilla. Gradually whisk in the sugar until blended.

Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers directions. In the last 10 minutes, add the chopped up bacon bar to the machine while it’s still in motion. Let the machine freeze for another 5-7 minutes.

Transfer to a sealable container and freeze until solid. The ice cream tastes just like chocolate chip with a hint of smoky bacon bits!
