Candied Bacon and Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yup.  These speak for themselves.  Though, it's worth mentioning that I ran out of chocolate chips, so I chopped up a bunch of fun size Hershey bars that were lying around and it was SO much better than chocolate chips.

Candied Bacon and Chocolate Chunk Cookies
makes around 50 cookies (I usually make a half recipe)
modified from the famous Toll House recipe

6 strips of bacon + more if you're prone to eating the ingredients ;)
brown sugar

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup tightly packed brown sugar
2 tsp maple syrup
2 large eggs
12 oz chocolate, chopped (chips work too)

1. Rub brown sugar in to the bacon until it is well-coated.  Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet, and put in an oven set to 400 degrees for about 20 min, or until the bacon looks well cooked.  Let cool, and try not to eat it all.
2. Lower the oven temp to 375 degrees.  Mix flour, baking soda, and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, mix butter and the sugars until fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs, and mix well.  Add flour mixture.
4. By now the bacon should be cool, so chop it into small pieces.  Add the delicious bacon and chocolate to the dough.
5. Place rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased or parchment paper'd cookie sheets.  Bake for 9-11 min.
