Bacon & Bourbon Peanut Butter Brownies

Yep, you heard us right. Bacon and bourbon peanut butter brownies. Yes, yes and yes. Everything is better with bacon – especially this deliciously decadent sweet treat.

Bacon Bourbon Brownies

Ingredients


200g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
185g dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
3 rashers of streaky bacon
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
3 tbsp bourbon
5 – 6 spoonfuls of crunchy peanut butter
50g milk chocolate chips
Handful of raspberries (optional)

Method


  1. Add the butter cubes and dark chocolate into a medium bowl; place over a small saucepan about a quarter full of hot water. Set to a low heat and stir until melted; leave to one side for later
  2. Grill your bacon until crispy; once cool, chop into very small pieces; leave to one and preheat your oven to 180°C
  3. Break your eggs into a large bowl and tip in the golden caster sugar; with an electric mixer (or your stand mixer), whisk the eggs and sugar until they form a thick and creamy mousse, this should take about 5 minutes
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture over the mousse and add your bourbon. Very gently fold together with a rubber spatula; keep folding until combined and the mixture is dark brown
  5. Over the mixture, sieve your flour and cocoa powder on top; again gently fold in the powder until the mixture is fudgy. Stir in the bacon pieces
  6. Line a square tin with baking parchment or butter; pour the mixture into the prepared tin and ease the mixture into the corners until you have an even layer across the tin
  7. Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until the top has a shiny, papery crust
  8. Take out of the oven, leave for a few minutes to cool slightly then spread crunchy peanut butter on top; sprinkle with chocolate chips and leave to cool
  9. Once cool, cut into squares and serve on their own or with tart raspberries
