As you can see, I placed the aluminum pan on a rack that was placed on a cookie sheet. This will allow the grease to drain away.
Next, place in a 350²F oven for 15 - 20 minutes. You want them as crispy as you normally like your bacon. Remove from oven and place in your refrigerator for approximately 2 hours or until completely chilled.
While your roses are chilling you can start to melt you chocolate. For these 6 roses I melted approximately 8 - 10 ounces of chocolate. I used Wilton Candy Melts. You will only need approximately 15 minutes to melt your chocolate.
Remove your rose from refrigerator and remove the toothpick. Dip each rose into the chocolate and place on a plate so that you can place your chocolate covered bacon back into the refrigerator for just a few minutes. After they have chilled, stick onto the stem that you removed the artificial rose from earlier. And there you have some chocolate covered roses.
Sweet and salty for your significant other. Great for Valentine's Day or any special occasion.
