Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies combine sweet and savoury into the ultimate simple cookie recipe that will disappear from the cookie jar in minutes!

If you’re looking for our Perogie Casserole with Bacon recipe, it was so popular we moved it to its own recipe post HERE. 

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ll admit it – my family and I were a bit dubious about adding bacon to tried-and-true classic, chocolate chip cookies. However, the slightly salty crispiness paired with the softness of the cookies won us all over. Sweet (but not too sweet), salty and crispy is a winning combination. How did I not think of this before?

Just imagine, homemade chocolate chip cookies taken to the next level! The (not so) secret ingredient is Great Value Thick Bacon. It can be a dangerous recipe, though – it’s so easy to make, you will want more!

You need:

Great Value Thick Bacon, Great Value All Purpose Flour, Great Value Baking Soda, Great Value Salt, Great Value Unsalted Butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, 2 Great Value Eggs, Great Value Vanilla Extract, and Great Value Milk Chocolate Chips.bacon chocolate chip cookies ingredients

 Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies Didn’t I tell you that these Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies were so easy to make? It’s a fun activity to do with the kids; they’ll love to squish their hands in the dough. I find even now that my daughter loves to be the one to drop the cookie dough onto the pan. I think it’s her favourite part – besides mixing in the chocolate chips, that is!bacon chocolate chip cookies

Can you freeze the bacon chocolate chip cookies?

Why yes you can as long as they are in an airtight container! However, I don’t think they’ll last long enough to be frozen unless you make extras. Even though my family had their doubts before they tried this combination, once they did try the bacon chocolate chip cookies they did not last long!

  3. The combo of both recipes would make for a nice weekend lunch I would think. Bake the cookies while eating the casserole so you can have them hot out of the oven. Sounds like a bit of a plan 😀
