Chocolate Bacon Bites

Shockingly delicious bacon brownies that are totally Paleo and who would have thought.  So this dessert totally plays into my recent Pork kick.  I was going to just dip some bacon in chocolate but decided to do one better.  Here you end up with Chocolate Bacon Brownies which can easily be converted to a cake.  The process for this for me was a little long because instead of traditionally cooking the bacon, I baked it in 100% Pure Maple Syrup to try and really give it that sweetness to pair well with the saltiness of the Bacon.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did, especially since I ate about 8 of them.

  1. Just made this, cooking as I write. The batter was very thick, had to mix by hand. Did anyone else find it overly thick?

  2. These came out really good, even my non-paleo but bacon loving fiancee approves. Taking them to my xfit Labor Day BBQ. Thanks so much!!

  3. I just drooled on my mac, seriously. This is so bloody brilliant that I must make these….right now! I’ll definitely come rate after I’ve made these little babies.
