Only 3 ingredients and 30 minutes are between you and this decadent sugar free chocolate bark with bacon and almonds. This low carb dessert is so easy to make, there will be no excuses to fall off of the low carb wagon.
I have another low carb dessert for you today and I am so excited! Last week I brought you Low Carb No Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream which is seriously amazing. I love having a catalog of low carb desserts that are easy. It is so easy to just go grab a chocolate milk shake from the drive through, or a box of cookies from the grocery store. If you keep some of these low carb desserts on hand, like this sugar free chocolate bark, you will be killing your low carb game!
I have to admit that I hate baking and making desserts. I think it is the measuring of the powdery ingredients that turns me off. They make such a mess! That’s why I keep the recipes on this blog so simple!
This sugar free chocolate bark is really one of the easiest desserts I have ever made. I guess the hardest part would be melting the chocolate. I melt mine in the microwave, as opposed to using a double boiler. I think the microwave method to melting chocolate is so easy!
How to temper chocolate in the microwave:
All you do is pour your chocolate into a microwave safe bowl (I used Lily’s Chocolate because it is sugar free), put it in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, do another 30 seconds, stir again. You might have to do one last round of 15 seconds. You want to make sure you have a little bit of unmelted chocolate chips leftover when you pull it out of the microwave. Then stir one last time and it should all be melted.
Lets get to the secret ingredient in this sugar free chocolate bark…bacon. It really makes this low carb dessert taste out of this world amazing. If you are new to this blog, you may not know that I have an obsession with bacon. It’s true…bacon is my BFF. I have a whole section dedicated to the amazing stuff. I need a 12 step program.
