Bacon Brownies with maple caramel sauce

baconmaplebrowniesSometimes you just gotta mix it up a little. I took my brownie recipe, which you can find on this blog, and added bacon. It is a simple as that! I rough chopped six strips of crispy thick cut bacon and reserved a few bits for a garnish on top. Below is the maple caramel sauce I drizzled on top:

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup pure maple syrup


In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add sugar and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved, then adjust heat to medium and boil 2 minutes longer. Add maple syrup and boil, stirring frequently, until sauce is thick, smooth, and coats a spoon, 2 to 4 minutes longer. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour into heatproof decorative jars and cool completely. Refrigerate in tightly sealed jars for up to 2 months.

This stuff is also amazing over vanilla ice cream!
