Happy Owl-o-Ween!

Happy Owl-o-Ween!

Or should I say, Merry Christmas from snowy New York? BOO!

(see what I did there?)

Anyway, my office had a Halloween Bake-Off on Friday and with the help of Pinterest, I decided to make these cute little owls. Sadly, I didn’t win. The girl who won made a delicious dessert… that wasn’t in any way related to Halloween. And all of the entries were supposed to be Halloween themed! Now don’t get me wrong, these little owls are yummy- but if we were going for a real down-and-out Bake-Off battle, I would have made something with a little more culinary flair! (Not that I’m bitter about not winning or anything…)

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Yes, you read that correctly. Bacon + Chocolate combines for the perfect little cookie.

My sister first told me about this little bit of culinary heaven (she’s known for her baking, not her decorating) and I knew I had to try it! What’s not to love? Bacon and chocolate are perhaps two of my favorite foods, and I’ve always loved a sweet and salty combo! Don’t be worried about the saltiness of the bacon overwhelming the chocolate– you candy the bacon (read: fancy way to say ‘you put brown sugar on the bacon’) so it’s more of a smoky sweet flavor! Mmm… hungry yet?

And to make these cookies even better, they are just about the easiest things in the world to make! Seriously, just look at how easy!
