Better Bacon Brownies: Bacon Lovers Day

Today is National Bacon Lovers Day! I've posted many chocolate bacon recipes over the years because bacon provides a great saltiness that complements the chocolate. I've even posted two Bacon Brownie recipes. But if two recipes aren't enough, here's a third. Recipe adapted from  Of course, you can add more bacon if you'd like. I love that you caramelize the bacon in this brownie recipe.

Better Bacon Brownies

1/4 pound bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp Madagascar vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup DARK cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Grease 8-inch square baking dish.
Fry bacon in skillet over medium-high heat until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Add honey and stir until foaming subsides. Remove bacon with slotted spoon to plate to cool.
Mix melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl; mix in eggs.
Sift flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in bowl; add to egg mixture.
Fold bacon and chocolate chips into mixture; pour into prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.
Allow brownies to cool for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.
