Cronuts have become a new fad in desserts.  As a cross between a croissant and a donut, the tasty treat has become popular all over the country.

Zombie Burger Chef Tom McKern said he'll be making chocolate-covered bacon cronuts for this year's Blue Ribbon Bacon Fest, held on Feb. 1.  McKern said he thinks the cronuts and Bacon Fest are a fun way to celebrate the love of bacon.

McKern said his cronut recipe involves using pork fat instead of butter and a bacon-chocolate glaze on the cronut.  And what better way to top it off than with bacon-chocolate sprinkles.
