More chocolate craziness

The more I dig the more crazy chocolate stuff I find! I'm sure your sick of posts on this subject by now (or intrigued like I am) but here are two more chocolate treats.

First up is chocolate monopoly. It's a twist on the original game, because the pieces and properties are made out of chocolate. The winner gets to eat them all. I guess this isn't a game you can play more than once!
You can buy this one from BoardGameGeek

This is not the game Monopoly except in name only.
The name is licensed from Hasbro but any similarity ends there.
The player whose turn it is spins a spinner. This determines where the player places a chocolate piece representing a property color. When all properties of that color
or railroad have been placed the next player to spin that color or railroad gets
to eat all those chocolates. There are 32 pieces of milk chocolate in the game.
The winner is the player who accumulates and eats the most pieces of chocolate

There's also a version called Chocolate-opoly.

You can buy this version from

Chocolate-opoly...A decadently delicious property trading game for chocolate lovers! Dark, milk, bittersweet, semi-sweet, in a shake, filled with caramel, covered in nuts, or as a warm, frothy brew - there's nothing the cocoa bean can't do. In Chocolate-opoly players buy favorite chocolate properties, collect chunks of chocolate and trade them in for chocolate factories. Sounds easy enough but pay your conching fees, suppress your cravings or get sent to Chocoholics Anonymous and it becomes a little more difficult...and a lot more fun! So choose your token and roll the dice! Who knows? You may be chosen as a "Supertaster" or you may experience Death by Chocolate. Here's a game for the true chocophile! For 2-6 players, ages 8 to adult.

There's also a lot of recipes for chocolate covered bacon! It sounds kinda
gross...but here's the recipe if you're interested

Chocolate Covered Bacon
Original recipe by PartySugar

6-8 slices thick cut, best quality bacon
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 ounces white chocolate, melted, optional for garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. Place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven, until bacon is cooked to your liking. 15 minutes for soft bacon, 20 minutes for crispy bacon.
3. Let bacon cool on the parchment paper for 5 minutes then transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
4. Meanwhile set up a double boiler. Heat a large saucepan filled with water over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer.
5. Set a heat-proof bowl over the simmering water. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a fork until smooth and completely melted.
6. Cover another baking sheet with parchment paper.
7. Using tongs, carefully dip the bacon into the melted chocolate turning to coat all sides in chocolate. Transfer to the clean sheet of waiting parchment paper. Repeat with remaining slices of bacon.
8. Drizzle with the white chocolate, if desired.
9. Refrigerate until chocolate is hard.
10. Once cool, enjoy!
