Our daughter is home from Denver for vacation, last weekend we took her to Seaside Oregon and spent the day having fun in the sand. We stopped into a candy store called the Buzz because they had on their window an ad for Chocolate Dipped Bacon. I could not resist giving that a try, We both love chocolate and bacon so the 2 together even though the thought of it sounds odd, it had to taste good...right ? Let me tell you, it was absolutely over the top good. I knew if bacon covered in chocolate tasted good, then some warm gooey bacon chocolate chip cookies would also taste great. The sweet of the chocolate and the smoky of the bacon is a wonderful combination in a cookie, it’s a Must TRY.
2 1/4 C. - Flour
1 Tsp. - Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp. - Salt
2 Sticks - Butter ( soft )
3/4 C. - Sugar
3/4 C. - Brown Sugar
2 Tsp. - Vanilla
2 - Eggs
1 C. - Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1 C. - Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Chips
8 Thick - Slices Of Bacon ( cooked)
Cook the bacon until golden and crispy ( my husband does it on the BBQ ) set aside in the fridge to cool. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. Beat the butter, sugar, and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and light in color ( about 4 minutes ). Add the vanilla and one egg at a time on low speed until well combined. Gradually add in the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, stir in the chips and cut the bacon into pieces about the same size as the chips and mix well. Drop onto a parchment, lined baking sheet and cook in a 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for about 1 minutes then transfer to waxed paper to set and cool.
