Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies

This month the Cook Off is back at Kitchen Corners.  The challenge is crazy chocolate creations.  I have been wanting to put bacon in chocolate cookies for a long time.  It just seems like a good idea.  I like chocolate, cookies, and bacon so why not put them together?  
  
I used dark cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips.  The bacon adds a salty, smokey surprise.  

These cookies are so good.  This is super dark chocolate and very decadent.  I like the surprise of bacon in here, in fact next time I think I will use more bacon.


UPDATE: Add PB Chips instead of Chocolate for an even yummier cookie!!

That sounds just weird enough to be awesome! Although part of me keeps thinking "bacon? with chocolate?" everybody loves salty and sweet, so why not, right?!
