If peanut butter bacon bombs are wrong, I don't want to be right

If deep-fried bacon-wrapped peanut butter bacon bombs are not words that you associate with heaven, I'm not sure we can be friends anymore.

My biggest candy weakness, hands down, is peanut butter. More specifically, the filling of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, because the eggs have hardly any chocolate holding all that delicious peanut butter in. If you nibbled the edges off that peanut butter egg, wrapped it in bacon and deep-fried it, well, I would quit my job and make eating those my new profession.

A very, very, very close second to that option is to skip the peanut butter egg altogether and just deep-fry plain ol' frozen peanut butter, like Nick Chipman of DudeFoods did in his kitchen, which I can only assume is a replica of Dexter's genius laboratory, where he looked something like this:

The result? These ridiculously amazing peanut butter bacon bombs that I need in my life immediately. And seriously, if the clouds of heaven aren't wrapped in bacon and full of gooey peanut butter, I'm going to be mighty disappointed.

Deep Fried Bacon Wrapped Peanut Butter Balls made some Deep Fried Bacon Wrapped Peanut Butter Balls over the weekend. They were amazing, and as I sit here at my desk at my crappy office job on this rainy Monday morning all I can think about is how much I wish I was back at home, sitting on the couch eating these by the fistful.
