Bacon makes everything better. Bacon is God. Atleast as far as I am concerned.
I had first encountered the pairing of Bacon and chocolate in bacon chocolates someone got for me from US. The taste kind of blew my mind, I had one, then the second and before I knew I had finished the whole box of 12 without sharing a single bite with anyone. Many years ago it was a flavour combination that blew my mind and since then I have it many ways at many places but even now one of my most favorite ways of eating this is as “Bacon Brownies” for me truly Heaven on Plate.
I started making them many years ago and make many many versions of them. Just like other brownies I make. Sometimes I spike them with rum and sometimes add salted caramel sauce on top. Sometimes I add nuts to it and sometimes the only smokiness is bacon. But every time I have made them they have indeed produced aahs and oohs and sighs when eaten.
So this weekend, make this bacon brownies. Take a plate for yourself and eat one piece every few hours till the soul is totally happy with the goodness. We will think about that extra run on Monday
