For the most savory, sweet, and sinfully delicious dessert out there, you have to try these chocolate chip bacon cookies. While it may sound a little odd, bacon adds a smoky, salty flavor and a little extra crunch to standard chocolate chip cookies. Make sure to fry your bacon to the perfect, desired crispiness. We prefer it just a little crispy, but we promise it tastes just as good no matter how fried the bacon is! The only downside to chocolate chip bacon cookies? They’re so dangerously good, you might not want to stop eating them! We highly recommend this recipe for any sort of big family gathering, school event, or party; your dessert will quickly become the star of the show.
