Bacon Chocolate Haystacks

Bacon Chocolate Haystacks

In honor of my Dad’s 50th birthday, I made him these Bacon Chocolate Haystacks.

Pa Bacon likes the mixture of chocolate, coconut, and nuts.

I hope he wasn’t too disappointed that I bacon-fied his chocolate coconut haystacks.

Note, the picture is intentionally black-and-white. You know … old. Like my Pa Bacon. (just kidding Dad, love you like bacon crazy!)
