What you need: 

Brewnies

  •  ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, cubed
  •  6 ½ oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  •  1/3 cup Station Cold Brew Concentrate
  •  3 eggs
  •  1 ½ cups packed, golden yellow sugar
  •  2/3 cups all purpose flour
  •  ½ cup 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  1 cup dark chocolate chips
  •  ½ cup pecan pieces

Ganache

  •  2 oz semi-sweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
  •  ¼ cup heavy cream

Bacon Shards

  •  4 strips of unsmoked bacon, cut in to 3 pieces per strip
  •  2 tablespoons pecan pieces, chopped finely
  •  2 tablespoons golden yellow sugar
  •  1 tablespoon Station Cold Brew Concentrate

Equipment note:

12”x9”x1”deep baking pan, lined with baking parchment and greased

Method

1. Preheat your oven to 350F/180C and melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Once melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool. When cool add the cold brew concentrate and stir

3. In a stand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until the mixture is thickened and increased in volume. While in a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt

5. Fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and sift in the dry ingredients, and fold together and fold in the chocolate chips and pecan pieces

8. Pour your mixture into your baking pan and level the surface and place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. When done remove from oven and leave to cool completely in the pan before removing or cutting into squares

Bacon shards

1. In a bowl add the cold brew concentrate, mix with the bacon pieces, and leave to soak. Then, add the fine pecan pieces to a bowl with the sugar and mix.

3. Remove the bacon pieces from the cold brew concentrate and dredge in the pecan/sugar mixture. Press so the mixture sticks and place on a foil lined baking tray and place until the broiler grill under they start to crisp and bubble. Remove and cool

Ganache

1. Gently heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over a low heat. Add in the chocolate and stir until smooth and glossy. Leave to cool and thicken

To finish

1. Smear the top of each brewnie with some ganache and a bacon piece

Jacked up sammy

  • 5 TBSP Station Concentrate
  • 1 tub of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
  • Sweets From the Earth Cookie Dough (we may have added some extra chocolate chunks)

Instructions:

Take your ice cream out of the freezer until it becomes soft.  Empty into separate bowl and mix the concentrate into the ice cream. Put the mixture back in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Follow directions on cookie dough package for baking (a little bit under-baked is even better). Allow cookies to cool fully. Take ice cream + concentrate mixture out of fridge and scoop on top of one cookie, spreading to the corners. Top with another cookie, wrap in foil, and leave in the freezer for at least an hour.
