Benjamin Steakhouse- Chocolate-covered Canadian Bacon With Cinnamon and Cayenne Pepper
(Serves 2-4)

2 slices of extra-thick Canadian Bacon
1 cups of melted chocolate (made with Semi-sweet chocolate morsels)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Powdered  sugar to top

1) In a double-broiler, melt chocolate morsels. If you do not have a double broiler, simply boil water in a medium-sized pot, then place the chocolate morsels into a smaller saucepan and place it in the larger pan to melt.

2) Stir in cinnamon and cayenne pepper

3) Place Canadian bacon in a rack and broil for about 3 minutes  on each side.

4) Remove Bacon from broiler and pat with a paper towel to remove the oil.

5) With a spoon, coat both sides of the Canadian Bacon with chocolate mixture.

6) Place in a lightly buttered pan, and  add to broiler for about a minute.

7) Remove, sprinkle with powdered sugar, slice and enjoy!
