"The combination of salty bacon with rich chocolate sounds strange but is surprisingly delicious."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Fry bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Add honey and stir until the foaming subsides. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate to cool.
  3. Mix melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl; mix in eggs.
  4. Sift flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a bowl; add to the egg mixture. Fold bacon and chocolate chips into the mixture; pour into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes. Allow brownies to cool for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you freeze the bacon first, it's easier to dice.
  • A nice touch is to place the candied bacon on top of the brownies. If you choose to do this, cook the bacon a little less initially, because it will continue to cook in the oven on top of the batter.

I really liked these. I added most of the bacon inside and left a few for the top to decorate the plate. Really rich. Tasted great warm.. hope they taste good tomorrow as well

Great brownie recipe, and the bacon works with the chocolate surprisingly well!

It was very, very good! The sweet/salty combination works!
