• 4 Caramel Fairytale Brownies
For the peanut butter frosting:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar
For the bacon banana crunch:
  • 6 slices bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup roasted salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup banana chips, coarsely chopped
For the sauce:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 banana, peeled and diced (toss with a tsp of fresh lemon juice to prevent browning)
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon


For the peanut butter frosting:
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, using the paddle attachment, cream the cheese, butter and peanut butter until creamy.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and mix until thoroughly combined.
For the bacon banana crunch:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place the chopped bacon on a sheet pan with sides. Toss the chopped bacon with the syrup and brown sugar.
  2. Spread in an even layer and bake until browned and fragrant, about 20 minutes. Stir after the first 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and while still hot, stir in the peanuts and banana chips. Cool to room temperature before serving.
For the sauce:
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Make sure the sugar is completely moistened.
  2. Place pan on medium-high heat. Cook without stirring until the mixture takes on an amber color. Continue to cook until it becomes slightly darker or registers 320F on a candy thermometer. At this point, remove pan from heat.
  3. Carefully and slowly, add heavy cream, stirring carefully as the caramel will bubble up and possibly splatter.
  4. Once the bubbling subsides, add the banana and the bourbon. Stir to combine. Allow caramel to cool for at least one hour before serving.
For the sundaes:
  1. Cut 4 caramel brownies on the bias. Place 1 triangle each on 4 dessert plates. Place a dollop of the frosting on the center of each brownie.
  2. Top with another triangle at an angle and place a dollop of the frosting on top of this brownie.
  3. Drizzle each brownie stack with the caramel sauce and sprinkle with the candied bacon and banana chip crunch.
