Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently, my friend announced she was sitting on the floor in front of her oven just waiting for the cookies to get done, of course I had to know more! Then she explained that these cookies had a secret ingredient, when I heard it called for bacon I was immediately intrigued! Her family loved them and the neighbors gave them the thumbs up!  My good friend Kim gets all the credit for this  ultimately delicious and clever recipe!!

Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies
Good bacon, chopped ( 1 cup diced and cooked well )
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup softened butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees
  1. Dice bacon into small pieces and cook on stove until well done, you don't want soft bacon. Drain and let cool, can't be warm.
  2. Beat the sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy and smooth.
  3. Mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet mixture, mix
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips and bacon.
  5. Wrap and put in fridge for 30 min
  6. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  7. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven
Thanks KIM!!


  1. What a fun recipe. I can totally relate to sitting in front of the oven window waiting for cookies to be done. I am not sure what my family would say to bacon in one of their favorite cookies...I should sneak it in and see what they say! As always, great recipe, Tiffanee!

  2. Okay, I've heard of chocolate covered bacon and people who try it LOVE it. So maybe there's something to putting bacon in the recipe!

  3. Bacon makes everything better!! These sound great.

  4. Hmmmmm that does sound different. My Hubs would not be happy if I messed with his chocolate chip cookies. For some reason he thinks I make the best chocolate chip cookies ever. All they are is the Toll House recipe.

  5. Bacon in cookies, well this is something I have never thought of that. I must try them!

  6. Oh yes, bacon makes everything better.

  7. What??!! Bacon? Who would've thought. That sounds just crazy, but sometimes crazy things turn out delicious! :-)

  8. That's very innovative to use bacon in a cookie, I'm sure it tastes great.

  9. I have heard of adding bacon but wondered how it would turn out. I am interested to try it!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home).

Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
