We've been having quite the conversation about strange snacks on the International Snack Swap discussion board. Someone mentioned chocolate covered bacon, and I mentioned that I've made bacon chocolate chip cookies before and they were pretty delicious. So I whipped up a batch today so I could take some pics and share the recipe! (and of course eat some tasty cookies!)
You'll need:
7 strips bacon, cooked really crispy, dried on paper towel (SAVE BACON GREASE!!)
1 cup, plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 stick butter softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cups chocolate chips
optional: chopped nuts

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Chop up your crispy bacon finely.
-Mix together flour and baking soda
-Cream together butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add egg and vanilla extract, and beat until just blended. Add the dry ingredients; beat until just incorporated. Be careful not to over beat!  Stir in the chocolate chips, bacon, and optional nuts.  Your dough will be pretty, it will look like this:

-Drop one large tablespoon cookie dough 2 to 3 inches apart  on un-greased baking sheet.

-Shut that oven door, they're not done yet. I know they smell good, but you'll just have to wait.

-Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, they'll be golden brown around the edges, and a bit soft in the center. Transfer to  rack and cool for 15 minutes.

-Give one to your toddler. The quick expression change from excitement to confusion is priceless!

-Store them in a container on your counter for a couple of days, and if there is any left after that put them in the fridge.


And that bacon grease that I told you to save- Have a movie night and pop your popcorn in it!!! FANTASTIC!!!!!

Bacon in a cookie? This is something new to me.  I am in a baking mood for the past few weeks.  I will definitely add this to my list of goodies to bake.  Thanks for the step by step instructions.  The pictures are helpful, too.

Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies are a favorite of mine!  I candy the bacon before I make them - just bake on a cooling rack in the oven, sprinkled with brown sugar until golden and crisp, then cool, chop, etc.

Also, here it what is nasty:  Turkey Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies.  NAS.  T.

PearlyWhirly  I used to think exactly the same thing. Until I tasted pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Trust me as someone who has grown up eating much the same stuff as you...suspend disbelief and try it..it is incredible and actually much better with the thicker bacon we get on this side of the globe. You need pancakes rather than crepes, put butter on them and then the rest
