I found this recipe in my Food and Wine cookbook. I love chocolate, bacon and of course, bourbon on occasion. What a great way to have all the flavors in one place. This recipe was developed by Kat Kinsman, managing editor of CNN’s Eatocracy.
The recipe was very easy to follow. I used pre-cooked Armor bacon that you finish off in the microwave, and substituted walnuts for the pecans.
These rich, intensely flavored brownies are the perfect combination of sweet, savory and salty. Chase with a cold glass of milk. You may have to stop yourself from eating the entire batch!
