These Gluten Free Brownies with PB Bacon Drizzle turned out better than my husband expected.  While bacon with chocolate – or bacon with peanut butter – still sound “off” to me, I am noticing a trend with adding bacon to everything (or so it seems) on the cooking shows I have been watching.

Why peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon?

I am a member of Peanut Butter Bash where we combine peanut butter and a special ingredient each month.  Follow us with #peanutbutterbash.  If you are a foodie blogger, join our Facebook group at Peanut Butter Bash.

To use a mix or bake “from scratch”

Normally, I make my brownies from freshly milled gluten free flours.  Not this time.  I wanted to work on my PB Bacon Drizzle.  So I used Krusetaz’ Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix to give me a few extra minutes.

Making brownies

Earlier, my husband baked the bacon on the broiler pan.  Be sure the bacon is crisp enough to break without being too crisp.

After mixing up the brownie mix and getting it into the oven, I grabbed the peanut butter, dark chocolate baking chips, and the bacon to make my drizzle.

I allowed the brownies to cool completely before cutting.  Due to the chocolate chips in the brownie mix, the brownies are rich.  The PB Bacon Drizzle helps offset the richness with a richness of its own.

    1. Ellen, I am learning how peanut butter and bacon go together (as is my family). It is a new combination for sure. Thanks for the comment! ~Adrienne
