Candied Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies

We have been planning a trip to The Smokin' in the Square BBQ Festival in Pensacola, FL for a month or so and tomorrow we get to leave. I've been to several festivals in my life, but this will be the first time at this one so I am extremely excited about a weekend of great Q. In order to have a few treats to take along with us for the weekend I decided to bake again today. I know this is ridiculous, 2 days baking in a row. I am that bored with no work. This does give me a lot of free time to read all of the great food bloggers that I guess I aspire to be. I ran across a blog that first made me laugh at the title, Accountants can cook?, and then drool at the name of a cookie. It involves my favorite food, BACON. To be exact, candied bacon. I have heard of candy bars that have bacon in them, but have never been able to locate one in the stores. The full recipe from the afore mentioned blog is here.

First the candied bacon: 1/2 a cup of light brown sugar sprinkled on top and baked. Then cooled.

All ingredients mixed together with the chopped bacon and chocolate chips on top.
The cookie dough balls before baking. Yes, that is half the loaf of Chocolate Chip Cornbread Breakfast Cake from yesterday. Yes there is only 2 of us in the house, and it was good enough to eat half in under 24 hours.
Same cookies, I just really liked this picture.
Out of the oven after the 12 minutes and cooled. Well all cooled except the 2 we ate immediately.

This picture actually shows the delicious super food, bacon, coming out of the top of the cookie.

These were some of the best cookies that I have ever eaten, and definitely the best ones I have ever made. I thank you Accountants can cook? I have learned a lot from these last 2 days of baking. I actually can bake if I put my mind to it and have the help of my beautiful wife. If I am to continue baking I need a few more kitchen items. A cooling rack, and something called Silipat to be specific.


  1. Accountants is one of my favorite blogs to read!

    And what does not go better with bacon???

  2. I bet they don't make it through the night.
