Whiskey Bacon Brownies

Want to make Dad a dessert for Father’s Day that you know he’ll love? Try making up a batch of these Whiskey Bacon Brownies.

Whiskey. Bacon. Brownies.

That pretty much says it all, right? I’ve combined three of my favorite things into one bite-sized dessert.

So this is how my Father’s Day dinner is going to go – this steak with onion sauce, these roasted mustard potatoes and finally these Whiskey Bacon Brownies. And yes, I’m actually helping cook my Father’s Day meal this year. Now that I finally know how I’ve got to step up to the plate.

Like I’ve said many times before I’m not a dessert maker. Not a baker, not even really good at throwing cookies in the oven. That’s why for desserts I go to the experts. For this brownie recipe I went to the Cookies and Cups website and used one of her awesome brownie recipes that I knew would work good with my whiskey bacon topping.

And I was totally right.

I followed the recipe for the brownies exactly (sort of) but then added a couple of extras at the end. One large pour of whiskey was first…






















Next was a whole bunch of crumbled bacon…





















Stir that all together and then bake for 20 minutes. JUST until the center is set – I am told – so that they don’t dry out.

While the brownies are baking you can get the topping put together. This is pretty much a german chocolate cake topping…minus the coconut…plus whiskey and bacon.

As you see I follow things exactly.

Let the brownies cool all the way and then spread the topping all over the top in an even layer. Cut into squares and serve.
