Chocolate? Bacon? French croissants? 3 of my favorite things! Perhaps, this combination came purely out an intense craving for salty and sweet. Or perhaps, it is just one of those things that sounds strange but you cannot knock it till you truly try it. Bacon and chocolate go together in my opinion like peanut butter and jelly. The salty smoky flavor of the bacon pairs wonderfully on the tongue with the sweet rich Nutella speard stopping any sweet/salty craving dead in its tracks.
I thought of all the possible chocolate strains I have in a stock pile and the first one that jumped to mind was Chocolate Thai. The beauty of this strain is that it has an intense chocolate flavor with coffee and spice undertones which can be paired with a lot of foods. It intensifies the creamy sweet chocolaty flavor of Nutella while pairing perfectly with the smoked apple wood bacon. This is the perfect quick breakfast before your day, an energy packed pocket snack while you are on the mountain snowboarding, or even when you find yourself with the munchies needing more uplifting sativa medicine. This is a very motivating and energetic strain, with excellent anti-depression and creativity properties. Enjoy with a dark roast coffee, cappuccino, latte, or your favorite black tea.
Mise en place:
3 strips of smoked apple wood bacon
2 tablespoons of Nutella (More of less depending on personal preference)
1 fresh baked croissant
1/2 gram decarboxylated Chocolate Thai Keif (If you want to learn how to do this properly be sure to order your copy of The Ganja Kitchen Revolution: The Bible of Cannabis Cuisine)
Carefully cut the croissant in half taking care not to smash the pastry as you are doing this. Spread the Nutella on the bottom half of the croissant and then place 3 warmed bacon slices on top. Now sprinkle 1/2 gram of decarboxylated Chocolate Thai Keif on top of the bacon and then place the top of the croissant down to make a sandwich. You can eat as it or to warm it slightly even more, place it into a 200 degree oven for 1-2 minutes or until it is warmed through. Enjoy!
