Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies - the perfect sweet and salty cookie! Bacon is quickly candied in the oven and then added to the best chocolate chip cookies recipe!

This post originally published on September 30, 2011 and was updated October 23, 2017. It’s one of my oldest and favorite recipes. 

The first time I ever made these Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies – over 6 years ago – was the first time I realized what a food blogger weirdo I was.

Food bloggers love bacon. Okay, yeah, everyone loves bacon but food bloggers love to put bacon in places where bacon usually doesn’t belong. Cookies, ice cream, rice krispies treats, pretty much everything.

I mean, I have a bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a glazed doughnut pretty much every Saturday morning of my life.

And you can think that’s weird but I have made everyone in my life try them and no one’s complained yet.

Bacon and Butternut Squash Breakfast Tacos - the best fall breakfast! Corn tortillas filled with bacon and butternut squash. Top with an egg, salsa, and fresh cilantro!

Heeeey guys, happy Friday!

Can I tell you about the first time I ever got a mean comment on this blog?

It was my Ranch Mac and Cheese from 2010 because yes, I have been blogging my entire life. And the comment was from a man, along the lines of Italian grandmother’s rolling over in their graves.

So I called my then husband in tears because omg, I had offended someone with my mac and cheese. And should I just take the post down? Should I respond to the guy and apologize? Should I just leave the internet forever?

No, I am not dramatic at all.

But you guys, when that comment came through, I was literally waiting for a car I didn’t arrange to pick me up for a flight I didn’t pay for so that I could go to Minneapolis to bake in the Betty Crocker Kitchens with some of my favorite bloggers.

It was my first big blogging trip and I’d never been more excited for anything in my life. Why was I so worried about some random internet guy who was offended by pasta?

But yeah, I’m telling you this because I still brace myself any time I take a classic food and make it a little weird because of that one jerk that decided to leave a nasty comment 7 years ago.

Y’all don’t even want to know the comments I got after those Cubano Tacos.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels - ranch cream cheese, deli chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onions are wrapped in a flour tortilla! Slice them up for a delicious kid-friendly lunch!

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Hey guys!

Is everyone adjusted to school now?

We pretty much are but I feel like I’m forever looking for ways to really streamline to lunch making process.

So I’m trying to find things that I can either make ahead of time or that are just easy to grab and put in a lunchbox without much fuss. But I also want things that are going to keep my kids full throughout the day.

Part of what’s making my life super easy when it comes to lunches are these Yoplait yogurts. The Yoplait multipacks recently got a makeover that includes an easy open top so you (or your kids) can see which flavors are left and easily grab them from the fridge.

I picked up the Strawberry and Peach package and a package of all Strawberry at Walmart to get us started this school year. My kids love both flavors and they’re super quick to pop in the lunchbox with an ice pack to keep it nice and chilled.

They also make great snacks after school when your kids need something super quick because they cannot wait longer than 2 minutes to get outside and play with their friends.

I’ve made these Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels several times since my kids went back to school. They are super easy to make ahead of time and then I slice them and store them in the fridge so that all I have to do is pop 5 or 6 slices into a small container and toss it into the lunchbox with the yogurt and the ice pack and a couple other things.

I know that making a sandwich in the morning isn’t a huge deal but man, at 6:30 in the morning it’s just nice to have something already prepped and ready to go.

My kids love them. The boyfriend even comes home from work and swipes a couple slices whenever I have them in the fridge.

Okay.

I know.

There’s a lot going on in these.

I was just going to do a regular s’mores rice krispies treat but add bacon for the sweet and salty but I love peanut butter with bacon and once that idea popped in my head, it was all I could think about.
