Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've had these cookies on my mind for sometime now. I believe I saw them in a Food Network magazine. They looked oh-so amazing with their yumminess of chocolate and bacon. Let me tell you, they were AMAZING. MmmmMmMMmmMmmm.
Just thinking about them now make my mouth water. Bacon + Chocolate = Heaven 

I searched and searched the interwebs until I found a somewhat perfect recipe. (I can't remember the url, so if you know it... please send it my way!) 

The pink is changes I made! 

Heres how to make 'em!

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened (Instead of 2 sticks, I used 1 ½ and the other ½ bacon grease.)

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips

8 strips of bacon (You can add as little or as much as you like.)

1. Heat oven to 375°F. 
2.Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by teaspoons (I made mine much bigger) onto ungreased cookie sheet. 
3.     Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Look at that bacon and chocolate... So close and so in love....

 Hope you enjoy'd this recipe and if you try it out, let me know how it goes!


  1. Oh man, I'd say use a lot of bacon. Bacon makes everything better. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cookies up.

  2. Heyyy! Any luck with the crochet cupholders? So excited to feature them! :) x
