We study charge transport through a topological superconductor with a pair of Majorana end states, coupled to leads via quantum dots with resonant levels. The non-locality of the Majorana bound states opens the possibility of crossed Andreev reflection with nonlocal shot noise, due to the injection of an electron into one end of the superconductor followed by the emission of a hole at the other end. In the space of energies of the two resonant quantum dot levels, we find a four peaked clover-like pattern for the strength of noise due to crossed Andreev reflection, distinct from the single ellipsoidal peak found in the absence of Majorana bound states.
