Bourbon Bacon Brownies

  Browsing through my email, I came across an email from with an interesting dessert. Well, if you know me, I've got to try something new, so I ran the idea past my hubby for his Father's Day dessert and it was a very interested yes that I received back.  According to, these are a very manly dessert.  So here they are.  I'm not really a big fan because to me, it seems the bourbon overtook all the things I love about a brownie. My husband liked them, but he did say "it is weird having to chew a brownie more than normal, but they are good."

1 pkg dark chocolate brownie mix
1/2 cup cook bacon, crumbled
3 TBSP Bourbon
1/4 cup Bourbon

Preheat oven according to directions on package for and 8 x 8-inch pan.  Prepare brownie mix according to package instructions.  Fold in crumbled bacon; stir in 3 tbsp bourbon.  Pour brownie batter into a lightly greased 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake as directed on package (about an hour), or until a toothpick inserted two inches from the edge of the pan comes out mostly clean.
Remove brownies from oven and immediately (and carefully) pour 1/4 cup bourbon on them. Cool in refrigerator completely before slicing and serving.

**Let me know if any of you have tried this out. I'm curious to hear other's people's takes on these**
