A foodie has created the ideal shot glass for fans of meat – and it’s made out of BACON.
The unbelievable bacon shot glasses promise to turn heads and perhaps a few stomachs at any social function.
The bacon and chocolate bar snack takes flavoured shots a step further than you might imagine, but their creator insists they are a massive hit.
The food blogger behind this unusual creation Natasha Rogers says these vessels create a talking point at parties and she will now share the secret how to make them at home.
The foodie, who blogs at, Through the Eyes of my Belly said: “These fun ‘shot glasses’ are a HUGE crowd pleaser. I mean, who doesn’t like bacon-chocolate and booze?!?!
“They may be a little tedious to make, and I’m still perfecting the recipe, but they are totally worth it if you’re going to a party and want to bring something fabulous!”
She posted her inaugural recipe last month and explained that bacon forms the body of the glass while chocolate seals the gaps.
In this step-by-step guide she explains how thick cut bacon should be wrapped around something so it keeps its shape while cooking.
The blogger said she uses a cut up cardboard tube to make the shot glass shape which she wraps in tinfoil before covering the mould in bacon, using a separate piece for the base, leaving as few gaps as possible.
The molds should then be tied with twine and put upside down in an oven at 190C, or gas mark five, for between 20 and 30 minutes, until the bacon looks slightly crispy.
Remove them from the oven and let them cool down for 10 minutes, and then gently extract the bacon shot glasses.
Next spoon melted chocolate into the bizarre shot glass and smear the insides taking special care to cover any small gaps before putting these in the fridge for at least an hour to set.
Then you have only to work out what shot you feel would most benefit from a sizzling pork product.
The wacky idea sparked excited comments from followers.
