Sweet And Salty
The saltiness of bacon and the richness of the chocolate in the brownies go together so well.
Easy To Make
When it comes to making Bacon Brownies, the recipe is fairly simple.
The ingredients are the basic brownie recipe ingredients. The difference in this recipe is the amount of the ingredients because this recipe makes a 13″ by 9″ pan and the bacon.
- White sugar
- All purpose flour
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Baking Soda
- Vanilla extract
- Mini Chocolate Chips
You can definitely cook the bacon yourself but for this recipe I usually use pre-cooked bacon crumble. Don’t get this confused with simulated bacon bits. There is a difference and simulated bacon bits are never something we purchase.
For this recipe, you want the flavour of real bacon in the brownies. If you don’t have the crumbles available, cooked bacon can be chopped to add to this recipe. I have also made extra bacon when making breakfast to make these brownies later.
Serving Bacon Brownies
To serve these brownies, simply cut them into squares and serve.
Another way we enjoy these brownies is to freeze them and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup on top. This is one of our favourite summer time desserts.
Storing The Brownies
Leftover brownies can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
For longer storage, wrap individual squares in plastic wrap and place in an air tight container or freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
