Homemade Friday: Bacon Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes.  Yes I did.

It may have had something to do with being in the midst of a three week long period* but as soon as I saw the recipe I realized that I had to make them.

I at least waited until the weekend, which is when you eat whatever you want and the calories don't count, right?



The recipe is a simple double chocolate cookie, with the added bonus of bacon.  Delicious, delicious bacon.

Honestly, I was a little dubious.  It sounded different, but wrong.  Like it shouldn't work.

The Unholy Alliance.

But I shouldn't have doubted the internet which is awash with bacon + baked good recipes.

I made a couple of very minor changes, but the original recipe is here.  I cut my bacon smaller than I should have.  I think having a more pronounced bacon flavor would have put these over the top.  In a good way.

Waiting to be frozen.
I only baked half of the recipe because I'm attempting moderation.  The rest I froze in pre-baked tablespoons-ful so I can pull them out and bake them whenever they are needed.

Bacon Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies 


6 slices bacon left over from Pancake Sunday breakfast.  Or whatever you've got on hand.
2 cups All Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1-1/2 cups Sugar
2 whole Eggs
1-3/4 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
12 oz Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook bacon until crispy and cool on paper towels, then chop up.
Whisk together first five ingredients.
In a separate bowl cream butter and sugar, then add vanilla and eggs.
Gradually add dry ingredients until mixed completely.
Stir in chocolate chips and bacon.
Drop by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, a couple of inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool a bit before removing from cookie sheet. 

*No, I am not exaggerating and yes, I realize that this is probably TMI.  But I feel it pertains to my state of mind when I lunged upon the recipe as soon as I found it.


  1. At first my vegetarian eye averted, and slowly turned towards the screen and sinfully imagined how friggen tasty these godforsaken cookies probably are!

    1. DO IT!!

      (They are so delicious! But if you really are averse to bacon, the chocolate chocolate chip cookies by themselves would be awesome, too!)
