Yup you read that right. These cookies are probably some of the best I’ve ever made. It’s sweet, salty and the bacon just takes it over the edge. Do you like bacon? Do you like cookies? Well, then this is a total no brainer. It’s pure decadence in your mouth. The next time you host a gathering, makes these for your guests and they will thank you endlessly! Here’s how to make your own batch.
- 2 sticks softened salted butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp hot water
- 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups – 2 cups cooked chopped bacon pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the butters and both sugars. Beat in both eggs and the vanilla until well mixed. Mix the baking soda into the hot water and then stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the flour and add chopped bacon and chocolate chips. I made extra bacon for breakfast that morning so that I could use them for these cookies.

Check out that batter! Drop spoonfuls onto your baking sheets. I like to line mine with parchment paper.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes. I prefer mine brown and crispy on the outside.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
The cookie monster only ate 2 because ya know… self control is one of the fruits of the spirit.
