Beth Tully somehow FAILED to mention something pretty pertinent to me when we were discussing her rare Peruvian chocolate last week.

Tully’s Cocoa Dolce recently has teamed up with Heroes Sports Bar in Old Town to create an intriguing dessert option: chocolate-covered sweet pepper bacon.

Heroes started selling pre-wrapped slices of its famous sweet pepper bacon, coated in chocolate and dusted with sea salt, about a week ago. They cost $3.50 each or $9 for three strips.

I’m a sweet-n-salty-aholic, so this idea appeals to me. If you can’t get to Heroes, you could try out this recipe for bacon brownies, which I made for a River Festival fireworks party in May. Worth every calorie.
