Caramel Bacon Brownies

0 93
Have we grown tired of the myriad of bacon infused recipes that were such a big trend in 2012? In some cases – I think not. How about Caramel Bacon Brownies created by StephsBiteByBite.com.  My friend just adores this recipe so I thought I would share it. They are so moist and delicious and I was lucky enough to stop by her place to try them first hand fresh out of the oven. Chocolate Seduction all the way!
This recipe and MORE can be found in a digital cookbook called The Bacon Book put together by Liz of Curate Hub.

I’ve had a love of bacon since I was a little girl, whether it’s crispy strips on my breakfast plate or thick cut slices added on top of a burger. There’s something about bacon, both in it’s smell and taste that give it a certain allure. When you smell some being prepared, the wafting smell just draws you in, in an almost hypnotizing manner. If you have a love of bacon just as I do, you will enjoy this Bacon Book. This digital cookbook includes recipes that feature bacon as one of it’s main ingredients. Once you start trying these recipes, you may start experimenting and including bacon in everything that you make. Sign up here to receive your very own copy of the Bacon Book. – Liz
