OMG! I just found out that International Bacon Day is celebrated the Saturday before Labor Day. I missed it! Fortunately, for those of you that missed it as well, it is never too late to celebrate such an occasion and prepare for next year. At Foot Traffic, we have you covered and offer men’s bacon socks  and women’s bacon socks to wear year round.  We would not want you to miss a minute of bacon fun every day of the year! To keep the (unofficial) holiday going, here is a recipe from Taste of Home for bacon that will send you over the moon—a combination of bacon and chocolate!  I know, can it get any better?!?


bacon covered chocolate
12 thick sliced bacon strips
12 wooded skewers ( 12”)
6 oz. white candy coating, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate
1 tbsp. shortening
(Optional toppings: chopped dried apple chips, apricots and crystallized ginger, finely chopped pecans and pistachios, toasted coconut, kosher salt, brown sugar, cayenne pepper and coarsely ground black pepper)
• Thread each bacon strip onto a wooden skewer. Place on a rack in a large baking pan. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely.
• In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Combine chocolate chips and shortening; melt in a microwave and stir until smooth.
• With pastry brushes, coat bacon on both sides with melted coatings. Top each strip as desired. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 1 dozen.
