Ingredients:

– 4 strips of bacon (or as much as you’d like)- 1 box of your favorite brownie mix (they used Turtle Brownie mix for the bag of caramel to pour on top)
– Eggs and Vegetable Oil
– Water

Instructions:

1- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees2- Grease a 13″ x 9″ baking pan (8″ or 9″ square pans will also work just fine)
3- Heat up a frying pan. Pre-cook some bacon for about 3 minutes per side. Not too much – you don’t want to totally fry it, you just want to get it a little past raw. Raw is bad for taste as well as for your intestinal tract. The bacon should just be starting to brown and might be a little crispy.

4- When the bacon is ready, set it aside on a plate lined with paper towels to help drain some of the grease.
5- Following the directions on the box, combine the brownie mix, vegetable oil, water and eggs.

6- When the batter is ready, pour slightly less than half of it into the pan.
7- Now add the bacon. You can go as big or as small as you would like. That’s the great thing about bacon – there’s no wrong amount unless you don’t have enough!

10- It’s ready for the oven, so take another look at the box and bake it for however long it says. Betty Crocker suggested 27 minutes, but these were done in just 22. 11- Let the brownies cool for a few minutes, then dig in!
