- I haven’t posted a recipe on here in quite awhile.
- Izzie and I have been doing lots of baking, but I haven’t had the time keep this blog up to date.
- I love bacon.
- I love peanut butter.
- Peanut butter and bacon together equals a party in your mouth.
- This recipe is from the summer, as you can tell from Izzie’s attire.
- I almost froze when I walked out the door this morning and it’s not even winter yet.
- I’m not prepared for the cold.
- If you want to add an extra layer of fat to keep you warm this winter, peanut butter bacon blondies are the way to go.
- I see snowflakes
*I’m not great at taking photos when we’re baking but this set was particularly bad. I still have to post them with the recipe though so you can how Izzie runs the show.
Let’s get this party started…
butter, brown sugar, eggs, pure vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt
While your blondies are cooling, go ahead and prepare the frosting.
butter, creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, pure vanilla extract, milk (not pictured), fried and crumbled bacon
I guess I forgot to take a picture of Izzie adding the milk. Umm, awkward…So anyway, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached. If you like it thinner add more. If you like it thicker, add less milk. Personally, I like it thick.
Hello beautiful, crispy bacon.
The results are in and while Izzie wasn’t a huge fan of her creation, it was a huge hit with the boys in the family. I loved them as well. They’re rich and the perfect combination of sweet and just a little bit of salty.
Here’s the recipe, Enjoy
Peanut Butter Bacon Blondies
blondies from Simply Recipes
1 cup of butter, melted
2 cups of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla (I suggest pure vanilla extract)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups of all-purpose flour
6 sliced of bacon, fried and crumbled
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and melted butter until smooth. Add in eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients together, and whisk into the batter. Fold in bacon.
Spread evenly in an 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until done. Let blondies cool.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 tablespoons milk
6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
Cream butter and peanut butter. Add sugar gradually. Add vanilla. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. More liquid may be needed depending on how thick or creamy you want the frosting.
Frost cooled blondies, then top with crumbled bacon.
