Bacon Hot Chocolate

We can’t think of a better use for rendered bacon fat than a base for rich, thick hot chocolate...except, maybe a bacon brownie!



  1. Whisk together the bacon fat and cornstarch in a medium heavy saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer over high heat, whisking, then simmer 1 minute and remove from heat. 
  3. Whisk in the chocolate chips until melted.
