My younger brother ran to the store today to buy some bacon to go with his eggs at brunch. I encouraged him to let me use it to make chocolate chocolate chunk bacon cookies instead.
Typical me, looking for any excuse to bake something.
These won't come anywhere near my mouth, because quite honestly, bacon repulses me. I'm sure that my dad and brother will eat the whole batch pretty quickly, though.
Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Bacon Cookies
6 slices fried bacon, chopped
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup softened butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks (I just used an entire Nestle bag)
Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Fold in the bacon bits and chocolate chunks.
(And here is where I always refrigerate my dough for at least an hour. It's just habit. It would feel wrong not to refrigerate cookie dough. Plus, my angel food cake was still baking.)
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in 350 degree oven.
