Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Bacon Blondies

I’ve been on a big bacon kick lately. I’m not sure why, but I’ve just been throwing bacon into everything. No one is complaining about this recent obsession. I needed a sweet treat to share with friends and my mind instantly went to bacon. I found this recipe and knew it would be a hit.

I decided to throw some bittersweet chocolate chips into the blondie batter. And once again, I used Peanut Butter and Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful in the frosting (which was AMAZING). After initial taste testing, we decided they needed more bacon so I crumbled more bacon on top than the original recipe listed. I have reflected my changes in the recipe below.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Bacon Blondies

Peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon make an amazing combination!

Yield: 24 bars

Ingredients:

For the Blondies
1 cup of butter, melted
2 cups of brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
6 sliced of bacon, fried and crumbled

For the 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
9 slices bacon, fried and crumbled

Directions:

For the Blondies
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 chocolate chips and bacon.

Spread evenly in an 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until done.

For the Peanut Butter Frosting
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.

    Is there any way to make this without an ice cream maker? I love the idea of this chocolate sorbet and was totally on board until the last part. Now I’m very curious and might have to do some googling after my daughter goes to bed.

      I just started making ice cream after getting the ice cream attachment for my mixer. So I don’t personally have any experience making ice cream without an ice cream maker. I’m sure it’s been done. If you do make this without an ice cream maker, let me know how it turns out!

    I added 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla. It was delicious.

      So glad you enjoyed it! I love adding salt to desserts. I will definitely have to do the same next time I make this.
