I made one of those mistakes on Facebook where you like too many pages and your news feed suddenly becomes articles on articles instead of your friends’ statuses. I made a faux pas, but honestly, I’m too lazy to fix it. Story of my life.
Anyways, I saw recently from one of these “news publications” (definitely in quotes because if you saw the pages I follow, you’d hardly call them news) that Fall is “hostessing season.” Well, I sort of think every season is hostessing season, but let’s go with it.
You’re going to need some tasty treats for all this hostessing you’re going to do and let’s be real – there needs to be some bacon on the table. And chocolate. If there’s no bacon, I probably won’t come.
Too harsh? That’s just because this bacon bark only calls for three ingredients and takes less than 30 minutes to make. And if you nab your bacon from my go-to bacon company, it’ll elevate this simple treat to a whole new level.
Trust me, this bacon bark will be your go-to for all the Fall events Facebook says you should be having. You’re welcome.
