  1. 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.

    1. 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.

          rworange, add in some of those plentiful oranges you have to deal with....
          maple syrup jello with orange zest and bacon bits!

        2. If you check out the Montreal board, there is a thread about a chocolate with bacon by Vosges - seems to be quite the thing, though for me, never the twain shall meet!!

            I've tried that Vosges chocolate and I have to wasn't bacon-y enough!


          2. After how much I loved the bacon brittle that I made last holiday season (loved, oh so so much), I'm very intrigued by this recipe...

              Oh please tell me you've posted that recipe on the Home Cooking board! If you haven't yet, please share! I would love to make bacon brittle! (:

              1. re: chocolateninja

                There was a long thread full of deliciousness last year at this time on the Home Cooking board: I had had that recipe in a cookbook for a while, and that thread made me finally make it, and oh how wonderful it was.

            2. I'm scared,too.
              cookies are good. bacon is good.
              why do you have to eat at same time ?

              comeing up new idea is great.
              but I don't personally think this is a great idea...

              maybe not so nasty taste, but It's just not makes me want to eat or try making it.

                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.

                1. re: ChinoWayne

                  Two dissimilar flavors? Bacon and maple syrup is yum, so why not bacony goodness with your chocolate chips? Must be the sweet-salt-fat trifecta.

                  1. re: jennywinker

                    Bacon and maple syrup are complimentary, however to me, bacon and chocolate are a crash and burn scenario. To each his own. I do find the pictures titilating though.

                    1. re: ChinoWayne

                      I think the maple cinnamon glaze might be the key. But heck, I guess I'd try chocolate-dipped bacon if I had the chance.
