Bacon Brownies
They're amazingly moist, with a crunchy-sweet bacon topping and the flavors meld perfectly together. Even if you're not a bacon fan you'll still love these brownies.
  1. ½ cup Bacon Fat
  2. 4 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate
  3. A pinch of Cayenne Pepper
  4. 4 Regular-sized Eggs (or 3 jumbo)
  5. ½ tsp. Salt
  6. 2 cups Granulated Sugar (+ 1 Tbs. for the Bacon Topping)
  7. 1 tsp. Vanilla
  8. 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  9. 2 strips of Candied Bacon
  10. 2 Tbs. hardened Sugar from the Candied Bacon process
  11. ¼ cup crushed
Candied Bacon
  1. 10 slices Applewood Smoked Bacon
  2. ½ cup of Brown Sugar
  1. In a double boiler, slowly melt the ½-cup bacon fat with the unsweetened chocolate and Cayenne pepper, stirring occasionally until well blended.
  2. Let the chocolate mixture cool to room temperature (keep it liquid – do not let it get hard).
  3. In a large bowl, beat the 4 eggs together until light and foamy.
  4. Continue to beat, while adding the Salt, sugar and Vanilla.
  5. While still beating
  6. Add the cooled chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar mixture and with just a few swift strokes combine. Even if you normally use an electric mixer, do this part manually. Before the mixture becomes uniformly colored, gently mix in the all-purpose flower (sifted flour is recommended to ensure there are no floury clumps).
  7. Add brownie mixture to a 10x10 inch well-buttered (or greased) baking pan.
Candied Bacon Preparation
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  3. Heavily cover both sides of each slice of bacon in the brown sugar and arrange the slices so there is no contact between them on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes (until the bacon is well caramelized).
  5. Use a pair of tongs to transfer the bacon strips to a cooling rack and allow the excess fat to drain. Let the bacon cool until hardened.
Bacon Topping Preparation
  1. Crush the candied bacon and the hardened sugar left from the candied bacon preparation into little bits.
  2. Combine the crushed candied bacon with the crushed pecans and a Tbs. of granulated sugar and mix well.
  3. Sprinkle the candied bacon/pecan mixture evenly over the bacon brownie batter.
