I'm sure it can be done. I've heard about something very similar sometime in the last year or two, probably a cooking section on some other forum. I'm sure it was the combination of chocolate and bacon. At first I was a little bit appalled (back then) but after thinking it over I decided it might be good. I agree with what Girl49 said above, that sweet and salty are a good combination.

I'm sure the combination of brownies and bacon will please some people, although it wouldn't surprise me if some refuse to try it. After thinking it over I'm sure I would try it. I'll be looking forward to hearing how they came out.

I would try it if someone offered me a piece. I tried chocolate chip cookies with bacon. I thought they were edible, but a waste of chocolate and a waste of bacon. I expect I would feel the same about bacon with brownies. I won't be making it.

No, I won't be making it either. I doubt I'll ever have an opportunity to try it otherwise but there's just so many things to cook that you have to pick and choose.

Upon thinking this recipe over I think it would be a good idea to try to avoid getting the bacon too crispy. I think chewy would be a better texture because I would worry about the brownies getting too dry.

Well, i chickened out. I made my brownies without the bacon, frosted them with p'nut butter frosting and they were a hit. I am going to experiment with the bacon and chocolate another time.
