I dont know what came over me on Sunday, but I decided I needed to do a day of juicing. I have put on a few l-b-s over the past year and half and its catching up to me in an uncomfortable way. So before committing myself to a 3-day cleanse, I thought I should try some different things for a day. While the morning was fine, by the time the afternoon came around, I was seriously looking for something to chew on. I held out until about 9 PM when I finally spread half an avocado on an English muffins. While I think I did a decent job for my first go-round, I feel like I am ready to try it again next weekend, maybe for 2 or 3 days. Those of you who do these juice cleanses, tell me your secrets! Do you have a favorite brand of juice? Do you follow a program?

After juicing for a day, I felt it was only necessary to make truffles. Whether it be game day or Valentines day, these Bacon Potato Chip Truffles are sure to please your man. Heck, they might even please your woman (men take note!). Its pretty much a party in your mouth with salty bacon and potato chips in every bite. Sometimes I feel like its difficult for people to grasp the concept of bacon and chocolate, but seriously, the combination is undeniably amazing. I am a firm believe that anything with bacon taste better. Words to live by folks.


These truffles are coated with a layer of chocolate on the outside and sprinkled with an additional bit of potato chips. For the candy coating, youre life will seriously be so much easier if you use candy making melted chocolate instead of chocolate chips. Often times, its hard to get chocolate chips thin enough to produce a good coating and usually it takes several tablespoons of Crisco. I have been a long time user of Candiquik but also dabbled with Ghirardelli candy melts. Candiquik melts in the microwave in about a minute, and is seriously the perfect consistency for dipping things like truffles, strawberries and pretzels.

Bacon Potato Chip Truffles

  • Yield:24-28 Truffles


  • 1/2 C Cooked bacon (56 pcs).
  • 1 C Heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 12 oz Dark chocolate
  • 1/4 C Potato chip crumbs

For the coating

  • 12 oz Candy coating
  • 2 tbsp Potato chip crumbs


  1. Precook bacon (about 5-6 pc) according to package instructions. Allow to cool and chop into tiny pieces. You will need a heaping cup, but really, its not like you can add too much bacon.
  2. Heat heavy cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until barely bubbling. Stir constantly to prevent the cream from scorching.
  3. Place dark chocolate chips in a heatproof dish and pour warm heavy cream on top of the chocolate. Allow chocolate and cream to sit for 10 minutes until the chocolate has melted slightly. Whisk until completely smooth. If the chocolate isn’t completely melted, microwave the chocolate mixture in 15-20 second intervals.
  4. Take a handful of potato chips and squish them in a Ziploc bags into tiny pieces.
  5. Melt chocolate with crumbled potato chips and bacon chunks. Stir to combine.
  6. Allow mixture to cool and refrigerate until firm, overnight is best but a few hours should do.
  7. Using a melon baller or a tablespoon scoop, scoop hardened chocolate. Make a smooth ball out of the dough. Keep refrigerated while dipping, it will help make it easier to handle them.
  8. Melt candy coating in a microwave proof bowl. Dip chilled truffles in candy coating and roll until coated. Sprinkle the top with crushed potato chips crumbs.
  9. Allow the chocolate covering to fully set. Store in the refrigerator.
