Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon + Chocolate = EPIC.

Now to some, this sounds kind of gross. But I assure you...it's not. The bacon ends up around the texture of raisins and salty and sweet is a great taste combo :)


What you need:
For the Candied Bacon:

  • 8 slices center cut thick bacon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

For the Cookies:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 whole egg yolk
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Place bacon on foil-lined baking sheet. I did mine on one with a lip to prevent any grease from smoking up my kitchen and setting off my alarm. Sprinkle with brown sugar on top.
Bake for 18 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through. Let cool and then chop. Reduce oven to 325.
Sift flour and baking soda.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugars.

Then add vanilla, egg and egg yolk, beating until light and creamy.

Add flour and baking soda, slowly.
After the mixture is well combined, stir in bacon and chocolate chips.



On a parchment lined cookie sheet, drop dough by the tablespoon and bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until edges are brown. Let cool for 1 minute on pan and then remove to a wire rack.
