In my world these Bacon Brownie Balls are the perfect dessert – rich dark chocolate, candied bacon all rolled up into a perfect bite.

I’ve dipped these in chocolate before and they are good but my family prefers them just as they are shown here. the chocolate coating tends to detract from the chocolaty goodness. Plus IF there are any balls left over(many times I make these and they don’t last the day) they should be stored in the refrigerator as they contain bacon. The chocolate coating is not something you can warm up and these balls are best warm. If you have to refrigerate some they are almost as good as new if you warm them in a microwave for 20 seconds.

Another plus is that these don’t contain dairy. That is a plus in our household as we have a little one who is allergic and it’s nice to have something the whole family can enjoy!IMG_8323

I wish I could take credit for this recipe but I can’t. I’ve adjusted a few things but these Truly Decadent Bacon Brownies from King Arthur Flour are the bomb. My only changes are that I increase the bacon a bit, brush the bacon with maple syrup before coating it with brown sugar, take the suggestion to sub half of the oil for bacon grease, then roll them into balls while they are still warm.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

I wish I could take credit for this recipe but I can't. I've adjusted a few things but these Truly Decadent Bacon Brownies from King Arthur Flour are the bomb. My only changes are that I increase the bacon a bit, brush the bacon with maple syrup before coating it with brown sugar, take the suggestion to sub half of the oil for bacon grease, then roll them into balls while they are still warm.
Servings: 20-25
Ingredients
BACON
  • 8 ounces uncooked bacon
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
  • brown sugar, to coat
BROWNIES
  • ⅔ Cup Dutch-Process Cocoa
  • 1½ Cups Granulated Sugar
  • ½ Cup Confectioners' Sugar
  • ¾ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Espresso Powder
  • 3 Large eggs
  • ¼ Cup of Bacon Grease
  • ¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8" square or 9" round pan.
  2. Spread the bacon in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet, brush the maple syrup over the bacon, and sprinkle it heavily with brown sugar, to coat.
  3. Bake the bacon for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it's crisp but not totally browned. Remove it from the oven, and place it on a plate or parchment to cool. Don't place it on paper towels; it'll stick. When the bacon is cool, crumble or chop it finely.
  4. To make the brownies: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugars, salt, flour, and espresso powder.
  5. Add the eggs, oil, and water, mixing just until smooth. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing the top.
  6. Sprinkle the candied bacon bits atop the brownies.
  7. Bake the brownies for about 35 minutes (in the 8" square pan), or 25 to 30 minutes (in the 9" round pan). When done, a toothpick inserted into the center will come out clean, or with a few damp crumbs clinging to it.
  8. Remove the brownies from the oven, cool slightly then slice into 20 - 25 squares. Roll each piece into a ball keeping the bacon bits on the top of each ball if possible.
Notes
****Remember that these brownies have bacon in them and will need to be refrigerated. it's easy to reheat them - 20 seconds in the microwave and they are almost like they just came out of the oven!
