    Oh my gawd! Good, yes! It is a very rich dessert tho so be warned a 9x11 pan will make into a lot of servings.

    I just made the fudge. It is AMAZINGLY good! The mix of smoky-salty-sweet is perfect! I can't wait to hear what my co-workers have to say about it! I will take photos tomorrow morning after I cut and plate it. I didn't share the spoon with Bill.

    I baked mine this week and folks, it is YUMMY-LUSCIOUS!

    I'm going to call it the Elvis Presley Loaf...it is a peanut butter-banana-BACON-bread with Heath Bar toffee bits!! (Remember how Elvis was known for loving peanut butter/bacon/banana sandwiches??)

    So dense and moist...tastes even better a full day after storing it in the fridge. I think it tastes just as decadent cold, at room temperature, or warmed up in the toaster oven. I've eaten it topped off with some cream cheese or just plain. It's great with a glass of ice cold milk!

    Here it is right out of the oven:

    Here it is sliced the next day, ready to be eaten for breakfast:

    August 2013 Recipe Challenge.... Cooking with Bacon.... in a Dessert!  SIGN UP HERE!-img_4790-jpg

    Adapted from the site called How Sweet It Is:

    Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread w/Heath Bar Toffee
    makes one 10 x 6 loaf
    6 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 large egg
    2/3 cup loosely packed brown sugar
    1 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled
    1/4 cup bacon drippings resulting from cooking bacon
    4 bananas, mashed (about 2 1/4 cups mashed)
    1/4 cup Heath Bar Toffee Bits

    1/3 cup milk

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add bacon, cooking until crisp and fat is rendered. Remove bacon and let drain on a paper towel until ready to use. Reserve 1/4 cup of bacon drippings and set aside.

    Spray a loaf pan liberally with non-stick spray or grease with butter. In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon then set aside.
    In a large bowl, whisk egg and sugar together until smooth. Whisk in vanilla extract, peanut butter, bacon drippings and butter, then add bananas and milk and mix until combined. Add in dry ingredients slowing, mixing with a spoon until batter comes together. Fold in bacon and Heath Bar Toffee bits until it痴 equally distributed.
    Pour batter into loaf pan. Set pan on a baking sheet, then bake for 45-50 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove bread from oven and let cool completely before cutting.

    Omg! So it is almost healthy then, bananas and peanut butter! All these recipes sound awesome but I haven't heard of any dish with bacon that didn't.
