These have got to be the most epic brownies in existence. Peanut butter bacon beer brownies (say that 10 times fast) combine the tastiest ingredients into one crunchy, gooey, moist, peanut buttery pan of deliciousness. They're pure decadence.
These brownies are definitely not good for your waistline, but man are they GOOD! The chocolate and peanut butter are delicious on their own, but when you add the savory, salty bacon and the beer - wow - it really kicks this dessert up a notch! You might not want to add these to your daily diet, but everyone (including Dads) deserves a treat once in a while. So, dig in!
- 1 box Chocolate Brownie Mix
- 3/4 cup peanut butter M&M's
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup chocolate stout
- 4 pieces bacon (+ bacon fat)
Make the bacon.
While the bacon is cooking, measure out the Peanut Butter M&Ms. Once measured, place them in a plastic bag, and crush.
Start mixing the boxed brownie mix. Add the dry mix to a medium bowl.
Mix in the egg and beer.
When the bacon is done and cool enough to handle, drain off the bacon grease into a cup. Grease an 8″x8″ pan with the bacon grease. Now, add 1-2 tbsp bacon grease into your brownie mixture.
Fold the Peanut Butter M&M's into the brownie mix and pour into your greased baking dish.
Dice up the bacon very finely and sprinkle it over the top of the brownies.
Bake at 350° for 35-30 minutes.
