As many of you are well aware, I have this slight obsession going on with anything salted caramel right now…I just can’t seem to get enough of the sweet & salty good stuff! So here are a few other inspirations I found online that I am planning to try…thinking about morphing one recipe a bit…
Bacon Salted Caramel Brownies from Savour Fare
The one I want to play with a bit is the Bacon Salted Caramel Brownie from Savour Fare
– I love the idea of bacon flavoring the brownie with the salt, but not so sure about the bacon pieces. I may just infuse the cream with bacon and just use that to flavor the brownies…then add additional sea salt to kick up and bring out the bacon, salty goodness. I have done something similar with macaroni and cheese when I thought the bacon pieces actually took away from the creamy texture of the mac’n’cheese, but still wanted the smoky, salty, bacon flavor and it worked well.
Stay tuned for an update with pics and commentary — will probably wait until the weather turns before I give into baking again. – N
