There are some people who believe that everything is made better with bacon. And there is some truth to it. Bacon is the type of savory that perks up plenty of dishes, and some people love to pair the savory treat with sweet food in order to get that perfect ratio of salty and sweet. And there is now a new sweet and savory treat that is making the viral rounds: bacon-wrapped Oreos.
While the novelty of bacon-wrapped sweet foods has been around for a few years, these are particularly great because they can easily be prepared in your own home. The origin of the bacon-wrapped Oreos is unknown, but a YouTube channel known as BigJon TV has been showing off how to prepare these tasty treats on the grill.

The best part is that they’re so simple to make given that there are only two ingredients: bacon and Oreos. And the cooking process is made very simple as well, since Jon shared that the bacon-wrapped delights can be cooked on the grill for 60 to 90 minutes, at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Alternatively, they can also be made in the oven at the same temperature for the same duration. But Jon shared that you won’t have the same smoky flavor with the oven as you would with a grill.
But that hasn’t stopped people from getting on the bandwagon as there have been plenty of people who were posting photos of their own. Some of the photos were from the Traeger Grill’s Game Day 2020 contest, and one woman Tweeted that they “do not disappoint.”

As someone who enjoys savory-sweet creations, I’d definitely be open to trying one. Of course, not everyone was into it – there were plenty who Tweeted their revulsion at the idea of bacon and Oreos going together.
What would you do? Would you try these? Let us know!
