When most people think of bacon, they also think of eggs and other foods that are associated with breakfast. It can be more than just meat for a main morning meal or part of a side dish. It can be used to create rich and decadent desserts. Try the following four treats. They might not sound good, but they are delicious. Crisp hickory smoked or maple bacon is especially tasty with fudge brownies, rich buttery cake and more.
Enhance Store-Bought or Scratch Made Brownies
Chocolate brownies are one of the easiest desserts to make, especially the scratch variety that calls for cocoa. Whether you use a mix or a recipe, they can be extra rich and delicious. Stir one cup of crisp crumbled bacon into the batter, and bake it as usual according to directions. People will not be able to pinpoint the secret ingredient, at least not right away.
Coat it with Chocolate Almond Bark
Chocolate almond bark can be used to coat everything from bacon to pretzels. Bacon is much tastier. Melt chocolate almond bark in a double boiler on the stove or in a microwave oven. Dip cooled strips of thick bacon in the rich chocolate. Place them on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Melt a small amount of white almond bark, and drizzle it over the dipped strips. It is highly addicting, and it makes a great gift for those who love bacon and chocolate. It tastes great together.
Enhance the Flavor of a White Cake with Vanilla Frosting
Rich vanilla and bacon are also a delicious flavor combination. Enhance white cake with vanilla frosting and a generous amount of crisp crumbled bacon. If you want to give it even more flavor, stir about ¼ cup of real maple syrup into the frosting. If it becomes too thin, thicken it with one tablespoon of powdered sugar. Add a little at a time until achieving the desired consistency. Finish by topping the cake with crisp crumbled bacon and chopped maple nut goodies. They are a classic candy that can be found in grocery stores and drugstores that sell bagged sweets.
Stir it into Softened Vanilla and Cinnamon Ice Cream
Ice cream desserts that include bacon are especially delicious and easy to make. Soften vanilla ice cream, and stir in liberal amounts of fresh ground cinnamon and crisp crumbled bacon. Top it with thick and buttery caramel sauce and chopped pecans. For even more decadence, break up Caramello bars on top. You will love the mixture of flavors and textures.
