    I already use my Bourbon Bacon Jam in a multitude of ways. Spread on a BLT, hamburger, on a piece of bread, on top of deviled eggs or in COOKIES! You heard right foodie friends, I make Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies!

    BACON. JAM. COOKIES. You are welcome!

    OK, starting drooling right here. Bacon goes delightfully well with sweet flavors, my Candied Bacon and Maple Bacon Cheesecake is proof enough of that. Now envision the same sweet mix with crunchy Nilla Wafers, chocolate and a light sprinkling of flaky salt.

    The process to make Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies is no-bake (if you don’t count the bacon jam). Just heat up chocolate. I used dark chocolate wafers and double boiler, but you can also get the microwaveable tub.

    Fleur de sel, my favorite flaky sea salt for desserts, but you can use any type of coarse salt you desire, even Maldon or a pink himalayan sea salt for pretty color.

    If you prefer a different type of chocolate, say milk chocolate or even a colored chocolate for festive holiday cookies, be my guest to make them any combo you like.

    The white chocolate is just for presentation. And yes, I am aware that white chocolate isn’t actually chocolate at all (smiley face.)

    Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies are also great for Christmas Cookie platters and trays!

    Tools for making Chocolate Bacon Jam Cookies:

    Double Boiler– A double boiler is used so much in the kitchen, if you don’t have one, you should! From melting chocolate to making frostings and hollandaise sauce, it will be a true workhorse.

    Microwavable Chocolate– This is the easy way out. Just nuke it and dip. Plus, little to no clean-up.

    Dry Rack– the same as a cookie cooling rack. Great for allowing your little cookies to dry.

    Fleur de Sel– I use this on so MANY desserts! If you like salty and sweet, this is the salt for you!
