I developed this recipe for a friend. He kept asking me to make bacon cookies so I did! They are the perfect sweet savory flavor and get rave reviews from all! Sure to be a winner at your house to. If you cannot get cappuccino chips you can use a chip of your choosing. They are available on line, the www.decoretteshop.com is a shop in my area that sells them, they do mail order as well. Well worth the price and wait!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Love the chocolate and cappuccino.. then add bacon to it and you have one delicious cookie!

I did order the cappuccino chips, but these babies would be good with any chip in them. I would recommend that you get the bacon really crisp when cooking it.
