Take your chocolate chip cookies to the next level with these Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies! #BaconMonth2015
Are you as excited about Bacon Month as I am?! I know my bloggy friends and I are going to kill it this year with all of the great bacon recipes coming your way!! I’m kicking off Bacon Month with these Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies – I’m taking the classic cookie and hooking it up with some bacon and maple for a delicious new twist!
Brian is a huge chocolate chip cookie fan. Not only does he love the cookies, but he loves the raw dough. Blech!! I’m too much of a germ-a-phobe so I can’t do the raw cookie dough unless there are no eggs. Yes, I am that person. 😉
I know some people are off-put by the idea of adding bacon to sweet recipes, but sometimes, it just works. This Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is one of those times it worked! My bacon-loving boys loved these cookies with a glass of ice cold milk.
Remember, this is just the first of many bacon recipes this month! Be sure to stay tuned all month, my bloggy friends and I will be sharing tons of great bacon recipes!! I have a few recipes that I just can’t wait to share, I am so excited – and I hope y’all are just as excited for this series!
