Bacon. Blondies. Battlestar Galactica.

One of these three don’t belong. Can you tell which one?

That’s right! Bacon! What is bacon doing in my dessert?

I’ll tell you what it’s doing there: being awesome. I know a lot of people are skeptical about bacon showing up all the sudden in cupcakes, cookies, ice cream…

Oh, didn’t you know? Burger King sells bacon sundaes now. You know there was a reason you never ate there!

But these blondies are great. The sweet chewy blondie pairs so well with the crispy crunchy bacon, and to top it with caramel sauce is to send it over the edge into bacon dessert heaven and beyond.

As for Battlestar Galactica, maybe you have to be a robot to understand the connection. Or at least a fan of The Office.

Bacon Blondies
from How Sweet It Is

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, browned
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
6 slices of bacon, fried and crumbled
caramel sauce, homemade or store-bought

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

2. Combine butter and brown sugar. Add in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing until just combined. Fold in bacon.

4. Spread evenly into greased pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until completely set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before totally drenching in caramel sauce.
