Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Last weekend I realized what a little food blog bubble I live in. Let me explain.
We, as food bloggers, like bacon. We like adding bacon to things like cupcakes or brownies or cookies. We get excited when we’re watching Top Chef: Just Desserts and they put bacon in ice cream. It’s just how we do it.
I made these Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies last weekend to munch on during football games thinking they would be an immediate hit. I mean, dark chocolate chips and bacon? Who wouldn’t like that?! (See, food blog bubble.)
So throughout the day we had a lot of people come by to watch a game or 2 and each time, someone would say “Oooh cookies” and I’d warn them that they had bacon and then they would say, with disgust on their face, “Bacon?! In cookies?! You try them first” and they would push whoever they came with towards the cookies.
No lie. Everyone was disgusted by the idea of bacon in cookies.
But guess how many cookies I had left at the end of the day. ZERO. All 5 dozen cookies were gone.
Because bacon belongs in everything. Especially chocolate chip cookies.
