We ate this recipe for dessert, right after I had made them. The recipe really worked, but I guess the Bacon was too crispy and the chocolate overpowered the Bacon in the batter, and the Nutella overpowered the Bacon sprinkles. That was pretty sad. We still tasted the Bacon, but it was not as strong as we would have liked it. BUT WAIT-
There were 2 squares left after dinner, which I put in the fridge. Made sense with the meat topping. The next morning, I helped myself to a square for breakfast. Yes. For breakfast. Bacon is a breakfast food, you know! Don't judge me. Anyhoo, I took a bite of the brownie and lo and behold, there was Bacon. I could really taste it. I guess the chocolate flavor wasn't as strong when it was cold, and I could really, really taste the Bacon. IT.WAS.SO.GOOD! It was like eating the yummiest piece of Bacon-flavored fudge. Doesn't that sound good? Bacon flavored fudge. Mmmmm!
Next time I make this recipe, and yes there most definitely will be a next time, I will double the Bacon, cook it a little less, chop the Bacon into larger pieces, and skip the Nutella. And the time after that, I will try Bacon Blondies! My journey with Bacon has just begun.
