Chocolate chip pancakes, bacon, and syrup: the perfect lazy weekend breakfast. The combination of creamy morsels of sweet chocolate mixed with salty, fatty bacon topped off with sticky syrup is seriously outrageous and surprisingly addictive. And now, thanks to the cheeky folks at Vosges Haut Chocolat, you can indulge in this scrumptious delight all week long.

Luckily, a whole series of bacon and chocolate treats, from candy bars to truffles, have been dreamed up by this Chicago-based luxury chocolatier. Applewood smoked bacon and Alderwood smoked salt are combined with velvety, melt in your mouth dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or toffee. There’s even a chocolate chip and bacon dotted buttermilk pancake mix, supreme for those sluggish mornings. Don’t fret though if salty-sweet isn’t your cuppa. Vosges’ also does a fabulous spicy and sweet mash up with their Red Fire series where chocolate, cinnamon, chillies, and toffee become one. ¡Híjole!
