Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Bark

10 ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped
10 ounces peanut butter chips
1 tablespoon shortening or vegetable oil
4-6 slices bacon, cooked, diced

Place chopped chocolate in a heat safe bowl and place in the microwave on 30 second bursts, stirring between cooking, until almost melted.  Stir until smooth.

Immediately place peanut butter chips and shortening in another heat safe bowl and place in the microwave on 30 second bursts, melting the same way you melted the dark chocolate.  Stir until smooth.  Add in diced bacon, reserving 1 tablespoon for topping.
