Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies...

As you know, I take risks in the kitchen. Plain jane, cookie cutter, run of the mill recipes? No thank you... 

This recipe for candied bacon chocolate chip cookies from the girl who ate everything, amazes me. I honestly dislike bacon... I dislike the smell, the taste, the look... I'm just not a fan. But candied bacon in chocolate chip cookies sounds seriously scrumptious {I feel like the writers of Disney movies are the only people that actually use the word scrumptious... perhaps it's time for a more grown up vocabulary}.
