  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place baking racks inside rimmed cookie sheets lined with foil.

  2. Whisk together brown sugar, cocoa powder, and chipotle chile pepper until well-combined. Pour into a shallow plate.

  3. Cut the bacon into thirds cross-wise. Press one side of each bacon piece into the brown sugar mixture to coat with a thin layer of the spiced sugar, brushing off any excess. Arrange on racks in prepared baking pans, sugared-side up, close together but not touching.

  4. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes until dark brown but not burnt. Keep an eye on the bacon since oven temperatures vary. Let cool completely before serving.
