Bacon Hot Chocolate

Bacon Hot Chocolate Recipe

We can’t think of a better use for rendered bacon fat than a base for rich, thick hot chocolate...except, maybe a bacon brownie!

Serves 4 | Total Time: Less Than 15 Mins


  • 3 tablespoons rendered Applegate Naturals® Sunday Bacon® Brand bacon fat, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) bittersweet chocolate chips


  1. Whisk together the bacon fat and cornstarch in a medium heavy saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer over high heat, whisking, then simmer 1 minute and remove from heat. 
  3. Whisk in the chocolate chips until melted.
