Caveman Cuisine: Maple Butter Bacon Bites
Big bacon taste in a tiny little bite!
9 pieces of pre-cooked bacon (approx 1 inch square)
3 oz coconut butter (softened, see directions here)
3 oz unsweetened chocolate (melted, see directions here)
~1 tbsp coconut oil (for greasing pan)
Combine coconut butter and chocolate. Grease 12 sections of a silicone mini-muffin tray with coconut oil and place on top of a flat baking sheet. Pour the chocolate-coconut butter mixture into the molds leaving about 1/2 to 1/4 inch of space. Drop a piece of bacon into each mold and lightly press it in to submerge.
Put the entire tray into the fridge to cool and harden.
2 tbsp bacon fat (see directions here)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I used regular Hershey's Brand)
1/4 tsp pure bourbon vanilla
2 tsp pure grade B maple syrup
2 tsp melted ghee (i.e. clarified butter. I used Purity Farms brand)
In a small bowl, combine bacon fat and ghee, mixing until smooth. Add vanilla, maple syrup, and cocoa and mix thoroughly.
When the bites have cooled, pop them out of the mold and place on a sheet of wax paper. Add a dollop of frosting on top of each bite. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Yield: 9 bacontastic bites
