Chocolate, Bacon, + Blue Cheese Crostini {Appetizer}

March 7, 2012

When I first heard of layering chocolate shavings onto savory things like this, I was grossed out.  But trust me when I tell you this flavor combo will make a BIG impact!  These Chocolate Bacon Crostini are so heavenly.  I made them the other day, and I already can’t wait to make them for the next party I throw (maybe my sister’s housewarming party this weekend).  They absolutely 100 percent melt in your mouth.  The savory, mixed with the sweet, mixed with the pop of the blue cheese made my mouth say “I want more!”  I think these would be so fun at a party.  You could have the guests guess what the sneaky ingredient is to make these so good.  They will never guess milk chocolate!  

Happy Crostini SaucyPants!
