Chocolate bark is a fantastic thing, guys. 

I love it because it’s QUICK, EASY, and you don’t even need a formal recipe.

You can put ALLLL kinds of things on bark, too. And use different types of chocolate.

You can make a whole sheet pan or make little bark bites like these Blackberry Bark Bites I made last year. Remember them? I posted them on my Instagram when I was working with Lily’s Chocolate, but they didn’t have a home on my site until now.

You can find that recipe below! (Psst… it’s even keto/low-carb friendly if you use Stevia-sweetened chocolate like Lily’s!)

As for this recipe — bacon + blackberries might seem like a weird combination. Especially with chocolate.

Here was my thought process: 

Fact: Chocolate covered bacon is tasty.

Fact: Chocolate covered blackberries is tasty.

Fact: This Bacon, Blackberry, and Egg Salad is tasty.

Therefore: Chocolate + bacon + blackberries should be tasty.

And it is.
