Sweet “meats” salty in these ultra chewy cookies bursting with sweet chocolate chips and smoky bacon.
Chocolate chip cookies are my all time favorite dessert. I’m constantly looking for ways to reinvent then.
Go ahead I’ll wait!
I’ve never tried adding a salty sweet twist to my cookies, but why not just jump right in with bacon! Does bacon really make everything better?
These cookies seem to confirm that. They’re easy to whip up-no mixer required! It’s a great way to use up the other half of that pack of bacon you opened for breakfast.
