Bacon Bourbon Brownie Cookies


Try out these ‘Brewers’ Weakness‘ cookies! Simple and easy from a box of brownie mix! Adding in a touch of bourbon and savory bacon take this boxed mix from ho-hum to homemade!


  • 4-6 pieces of bacon
  • Box of brownie mixย 
  • 1/4 cup reserved bacon grease
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Favorite bourbon (we used Four Roses Yellow Label)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pan fry bacon in a large skillet–cast iron is great if you have it!
  • Cool the bacon on a paper towel lined plate. Reserve the bacon grease.
  • Once the bacon grease is cooled a bit, measure out ยผ cup of the grease to add to the cookie dough.
  • Combine boxed brownie mix, eggs, flour, bacon grease, and your favorite bourbon. You can omit the bourbon if you like, but when in Kentuckyโ€ฆ
  • Chop bacon into small bits, add to cookie dough, and gently combine.
  • Drop large spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Once cookies are out of the oven, let them cool for about 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Take these cookies over to your favorite brewery and dunk them in a rich, malty beer. Sharing with your bartender is optional.

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your site too often. I know that writing content is boring and time consuming.
    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new articles are unique and pass the copyscape test.
    You should try miftolo’s tools
