Beer and Bacon Brownies

These have bacon in them. And beer.

The End. 


1 box brownie mix 
¼ cup stout beer, like Guinness
¼ cup canola oil 
½ teaspoon instant coffee granules, optional
1 egg
5 pieces bacon, cooked, drained, and chopped into small bits

Chocolate Ganache: 
½ cup heavy cream
1 cup good quality chocolate

1 teaspoon caramel sauce per brownie
A few bacon bits
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 square baking dish with aluminum foil, leaving a bit hanging over the sides. 

In a large mixing bowl, prepare brownie mix by stirring together the first five ingredients  listed above. Mix until incorporated. Fold in bacon bitsreserving two tablespoons for garnish. 

Pour brownie batter into prepared dish. Using an offset spatula, smooth out batter evenly. 

Bake for designated time indicated on back of box. Remove from oven and allow brownies to cool completely.

To make Chocolate Ganache:

Place cream in saucepan and bring to a good simmer. Place chocolate into a heatproof dish. I use a glass measuring cup. Pour hot cream over chocolate and stir until melted. Let cool. 

Spread evenly over brownies before adding caramel, whipped cream, and bacon.
