I was inspired by colleenlucky7 for this, so I must give her some credit in helping with the idea.

Ingredients

CANDIED BACON

1 pkg
bacon, uncooked
1/4 c
brown sugar, lightly packed
2 Tbsp
dark molasses

OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

3 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 stick
butter, softened
1 stick
margarine, softened
2
eggs
4 c
quick cooking oats
3 c
all-purpose flour
2 tsp

2 tsp

1/2 tsp

1/2 bag(s)
dark chocolate chips

Step-By-Step

1Lets start off with making the candied bacon first. Preheat oven to 300°F.
2Have a dish with the brown sugar in it, place the strips of bacon in the dish and mix around to get it nicely coated.
3Take the 2 Tbsp of dark molasses and drizzle it on the bacon in the dish and then proceed in mixing the bacon around
4Place bacon on cooking rack that you would have over a cooky sheet. Cook for 30 minutes.
5Sit the bacon strips on a brown paper bag to soak up an excess grease. Once desired grease is off, place on parchment paper and place in fridge.
6Now the Oatmeal chocolate chip cooky mix. Preheat oven to 350°F. For me, I use old style dark cooky sheets so I set mine to 325°F.
7In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended.
8Stir in vanilla and egg until light and creamy.
9Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate chips
10Cut up the cooled candied bacon strips into small pieces. Place into bowl, and stir until well blended.
11On parchment covered cooky sheet, drop dollops of dough about 2 inches apart.
12Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let the cookies sit for a couple of minutes to cool some, then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
