My friend Cindy told about these brownies late one night. She had seen a similar dessert on the television show Bacon Paradise. So I decided to fool around with the idea a bit. With many trial and error recipes,this is the final product, try it! Bacon + Chocolate= Yum-O!

    8 tbsp butter
  • ·

    1/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make Bacon Brownies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the brown sugar in a medium size bowl. Doing one strip of bacon at a time, put bacon in the bowl and totally coat with the brown sugar. Place the bacon flat on parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until all are done. Bake for about 12 minutes. Turn each piece of bacon over and return to the oven and bake an additional 12 minutes or until the bacon is well cooked and crisp. Remove from oven and set on rack to cool. Do not use paper towels, ect. the bacon will stick. Chop the bacon into small pieces.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8" x 8" or 9" x 9" metal pan with cooking spray. Chop chocolate and butter and place in a microwave safe dish. Carefully microwave for approximately 1 minute. Keep checking and stirring because everyone's microwaves are different.Let the chocolate-butter mixture cool slightly then whisk in the sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time. Sift the flour and cocoa into the bowl and combine. Sprinkle in bacon bits, stir again, and add to your prepared pan. Bake 30-40 minutes. They're finished when a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out free of anything but brownie crumbs. Cool, cut, and serve.
