No-Bake Bacon Cookies

These bacon cookies have the texture of Rice Krispie treats – achieved with cornflakes rather than Rice Krispies. They have the no-fail taste of dark chocolate and peanut butter and the bonus of salty bacon (plus a little extra sea salt for good measure). They almost wouldn’t be sweet enough if it weren’t for the ring of powdered sugar that not only balances the flavors but also gives these cookies their distinctive look.

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

While most no-bake cookies are shaped in balls, this recipe is unique in that they are pressed flat so they look more like cookies.

What Are the Key Ingredients in Bacon Cookies

Bacon Bits

Clearly, you’ll need bacon! While you can use cooked bacon chopped finely or candied bacon, I find that these easiest way to make these is using store-bought bacon bits.

Peanut Butter

Smooth peanut butter works best for this recipe, although chunky would work in a pinch.

Chocolate

I prefer using dark chocolate for this recipe. Pick your favorite dark chocolate chip or bar – it doesn’t matter since it’s getting melted. The better the chocolate is, the better the chocolate bacon cookies will taste!

Cornflakes

Cornflakes give these cookies their crunch. You can also experiment with using other breakfast cereals like Rice Krispies, Cheerios, or Chex.

How to Make Bacon Cookies

This recipe and technique is adapted from one in the book Cookies, Brownies, Bars, and Biscuits and it couldn’t be easier!

First, you mix all the ingredients together.

Then, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Place a round cookie cutter on the paper or mat and put a heaping tablespoon of the chocolate mixture in the center. Pack it down firmly.

Ease away the cutter and repeat until all of the chocolate mixture is used up.

Chill for at least one hour and then roll the edges of the cookies in powdered sugar.

Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container with cookie layers separated by parchment for up to a week or freeze them for months.

  1. I’m making these in the morning!!!! Awesome,weird and totally up my alley!

  2. I sort of, kinda made these and they where great. Turn south didn’t have any corn flakes so used rice bubbles, made my own chocolate and used honey instead if glucose syrup. Despite being a deformed cousin to your original they were really tasty!

  3. Look at that, looks delicious. Gonna try these out when I get home :)
