RECIPE: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies

Make these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies as a Valentine gift or for Super Bowl viewing. The recipe is from QVC’s chef David Venable.

Personally, we prefer omitting the bacon bits and using only the bacon fat. The result will be a smoky, salty flavor that foodies can’t get enough of.

If you want to soften the bacon flavor, simply Try it both ways and see which you prefer.
