Candied Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies


Bacon is a huge thing right now. Just do a "find" on my blog and bacon comes up over and over again. When I made the candied bacon, I could barely stop eating it. I almost didn't stop myself until I realized I wouldn't have any for the cookies! When I visited my friend Natalee in New York, we went to Chelsea Market, and I tried a chocolate covered candied bacon candy. AMAZING. I had to find a recipe that replicated that taste!

  • 2 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
