Granted, I did have to fess up to raiding my husband’s mini peanut butter cup stash after creating these.  Working in my favor was the fact that this recipe creates four dozen cookies so he can simply enjoy them in cookie form until I buy him some more.  

Four dozen?  YES!  And I’m in and out of the kitchen in no time thanks to my Thanks to my  beautiful, stainless steel gas range from GE.  As I’ve mentioned previously with my Cake Mix Cookies recipe, the multi-rack convection feature allows me to bake two dozen cookies at once.  Such a time saver!

These soft and chewy cookies are absolutely loaded with flavor.  Peanut butter, peanut butter cups, chocolate chips and crumbled bacon all lend to the sweet and smoky flavor of these treats.  I also chose to utilize bacon drippings to insure that without a doubt, you’d taste bacon in each and every bite.  Mission accomplished!

      Not wrong at all! The good news is that the recipe makes four dozen cookies. Perhaps you could share a dozen with your dad and save the rest for you? ;)
