Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies...

That actually sounds/ looks pretty good. My husband collects weird things like refrigerators and bacon, so I might have to try this. Reminds me of a recipe for Beef Fudge that was included in the book "My Year of Meats." I *think* it was tongue-in cheek in the context of the book, but I'm still interested in makingit someday.
Well, I've heard of chocolate with bacon in it and didn't think this would be too weird until I saw the cookie with the piece of bacon topping it. My mind raced back and forth between mmm and eeew ... not knowing where to settle.
Some of the bacon sweets mentioned in the comments were ... interesting
- bacon chocolate sorbet
- bacon cake
- bacon rice crispie treats
- bacon hot chocolate
- bacon baklava
- banana bacon dumplings... the filling was like a sweet custard with bacon in it.
- Cur a Krispy Kreme glazed ddonut in half and add warm ham, melted cheddar and bacon.
I've been into making my own jello and I am both attracted and repulsed by the thought of trying to make bacon jello ... hmmm ... maybe maple syrup jello with bacon bits.
I don't want bacon in my hot chocolate (chunky hot chocolate?); although I like chocolate and bacon, bacon in chocolate sorbet doesn't sound appetizing (although maple ice cream with bacon does, go figure); I hate bananas with anything, but I'd probably like the dumplings with a different flavor (apple bacon dumplings sound yummy); and I'm not sure about bacon cake (would depend on the cake); but the others sound pretty good.
I made a gingersnap recipe that had bacon fat as the shortening and it was delicious.
I agree. Two very dissimilar flavors, but each very strong, fighting it out in my mouth is not how I want to experience them. It is very gimmicky, and that never interests me in terms of enjoying a meal, or appreciating a cook's creative efforts.
All of that having been said, that blog is kind of an interesting diversion.
