This sinfully delicious Chocolate Brownie Sundae With Maple Caramel Sauce And Candied Bacon tastes absolutely amazing times 100! The decadent flavors of rich chocolate, sweet maple syrup, creamy vanilla ice cream and salty candied bacon are a marriage made in heaven.
This weekend was my town’s winter carnival celebrations and in keeping with the theme, I wanted to make a frozen dessert with a Canadian twist. Canadians are known for their pure maple syrup and love of bacon, inspiring me to create this sweet and salty dessert.
I used my mom’s one pan brownie recipe that I been using ever since I was a teenager. Instead of using a bowl, everything gets mixed right in the pan. So easy and less clean up! Make them plain or add some tasty add-ins like I did with these yummy Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies.
Nothing beats the taste of piping hot chocolate brownies straight from the oven topped with a large scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. Except for warm brownies and ice cream smothered in warm maple caramel sauce and candied bacon that is!
For best quality and taste, use 100% pure maple syrup rather than a processed pancake syrup. Maple syrup is good for you too! It contains zinc, manganese and over 50 antioxidants which helps keep your heart strong, immune system healthy and helps prevent cancer and diabetes. That is all the justification I need to indulge in this sinful delicious dessert once a year (it will probable end up being more like twice) without all the guilt.
