  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Heath bits
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 thick-cut bacon slices chopped up


  • Preheat oven at 375-degrees. Ina large bowl, beat butter and shortening together until turning fluffy. Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt, followed by the eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour.
  • Stir in the Heath bits, chocolate chips, and bacon. Use a teaspoon scoop or spoon to dollop dough onto baking sheet, spaced out to allow for minor spreading. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until edges are just turning golden. Cool for five minutes, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
