Pig-Out Cookies

These cookies are naughty, delicious and truly sinful! Is there anything better than the combination of chocolate, peanut butter and bacon? I think not. I can't really give much more of an introduction than that because these cookies speak for themselves!

Here is what you are going to need for 1 dozen cookies:
-1-1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
-1/4 tsp Baking Soda
-1/4 tsp Baking Powder
-1/8 tsp Cinnamon
-Pinch of Chile Powder
-1/4 tsp Kosher salt
-5 strips of cooked Bacon-crumbled
-2 tbsp reserved Bacon Fat Drippings
-4 tbsp Butter (room temperature)
-1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
-1/2 cup White Sugar
-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
-1 Egg
-1 tsp Vanilla Extract
-1/3 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F) and line a baking sheet (or 2) with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, chile powder and salt. With a stand mixer, beat the butter and reserved bacon fat drippings on medium-high until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in the white and brown sugar until creamy, about 4 minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy for about 2 minutes.

Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add the flour. Mix until just combined and then add in the chocolate chips and crispy bacon.

For the cookie dough into 12 even sized balls and arrange them on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. Flatten the cookie balls with your fingers and then bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Let the cookies cool for about 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Pour yourself a giant glass of milk and enjoy yourself a seriously sinful cookie!


  1. These cookies look dangerously delicious! I'm really glad that the recipe only makes a dozen. I have a feeling these are gonna be hard to resist. ;)

  2. Everyone needs a pig out cookie once in a while! This recipe looks just about perfect!

  3. i love that you call them 'naughty'

  4. Helena-
    These were seriously so hard to resist! I'm embarrassed to say they only lasted 24 hours in our house.

  5. I think I just peed my pants a little....seriously these sounds (insert f-bomb here) AMAZING! Maybe that's my girly PMS-y hormones talking though...

    I'm so making these. Must convince Ben that Bacon and Chocolate go together. He doesn't seem to believe me...weirdo.

  6. I... Must... MAKE THESE!!!

    I mean... *pulls it together* These look delightful!

    I also like that WBACC put her cycle out on the internet for everyone to track. Is it possible for blogger cycles to sync up via the internet? Wait... maybe TMI? Maybe... *hangs head in shame... nibbles cookie*

  7. My daughter and I made these and they were outrageous!! I posted about the Piggy-Out Cookies and linked back to you.

    Thanks for a great recipe.
