Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Bacon isn’t just for breakfast these days. Sure, we’ve seen it in salads and sandwiches, but now it has taken over the dessert world. It’s topping ice cream, sneaking into brownies, and gracefully accenting pies.

We’ve even found a way to make it into candy. What? Bacon candy? I know everyone loves bacon AND everyone loves candy, so why not put them together and make candied bacon? So…candied bacon…how do we make it?

It’s really easy. Start off with thick cut slices of bacon placed on a foil-lined pan, and sprinkle generously with brown sugar.
