bacon brownies


Recommended Posts

i made these on the weekend and everyone ate them up like crazy! the brownie itself is great, and the bacon is nice but you MUST do the candied bacon.

* 12 strips bacon

* ¾ cup butter

* 2 cups sugar

* 1 cup Cocoa Powder (we like Dutch Process)

* ½ tsp. salt

* ½ tsp. baking powder

* 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

* 3 large eggs

* 1 cup all-purpose flour

* 3 strips bacon

* 6 tsp. brown sugar


Preheat oven to 325°. Lightly butter and flour a 9 x 13 pan.

Bacon for layering in brownies: cook in a large frying pan, flip to insure even cooking. Remove when just starting to crisp. Cool on a paper towel lined plate. When cool, cut into ½ to 1 inch pieces.

Batter: Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over low heat. Add sugar mixing with a wooden spoon. Continue to stir on heat for about 3 minutes. Shut off heat. Add Cocoa, salt and baking powder. Mix. Whisk in the vanilla and eggs. Switch back to your wooden spoon and mix int he flour.

Baking: Spread half of the batter into prepared pan. Layer in the bacon pieces evenly -- pushing them in slightly if needed. Top with remaining batter. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean and edges have started to pull back from pan -- about 30 minutes. Cool on rack.

Bacon for garnish: Line a small baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack on the pan. Lay bacon slices on rack and sprink with about 1 tsp. brown sugar per slice of bacon. Cook under broiler set to low or with rack lowered to middle of the oven. When bacon starts to color, remove pan. Flip slices. Sprinkle each slice with another teaspoon of brown sugar. Return to oven. Cook until crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool on rack.

Cut/Garnish: cut brownies into 24 pieces top each with a piece of candied bacon.
