I can’t begin to tell you how delicious these cookies taste! okay fine, let me begin, but you must listen!


Sorry. It needed to be heard. One of my favorite cookies on the blog here is Maple Bacon cookies. Apparantly though some of you get a little freaked out by adding bacon to your desserts. I don’t understand this. People eat bacon with pancakes and syrup, which is essentially sweet, which is really just dessert for breakfast.

So to make some of you feel better about the maple cookies, I thought, who doesn’t love toffee? I just so happened to have a couple Green and Black’s Chocolate Toffee Bars on hand for this recipe. These are not like Heath bars. Don’t be mistaken. These are rich chocolate bars with bits of toffee in them. If you can’t find the Toffee bars, I would suggest you just add a good Milk chocolate bar and extra toffee bits (like Heath). The good quality chocolate is just as important as the toffee in these cookies.

And the maple. Oh the maple….Just promise to try these before you judge!

Comments & Reviews

  1. Hi Aimee — these cookies sound wonderful. Is there a difference between maple extract and maple flavoring? I don’t care for maple extract and was going to ask you about using real maple syrup until I read your reply to Wendy in March 2013. 

  2. I have all kinds of morsels and Heath bits. Instead of using the chocolate bars, could I use semisweet or dark chocolate morsels and the bits? Do you think 1/2 cup of each would be enough, or more like 1 cup of each?

  3. A friend requested that I make these and OMG THEY ARE SO AMAZING!!! I usually make a cinnamon chocolate chip cookie for my work holiday party but decided to make these instead; they were an absolute hit! Thank you for the recipe, I will be back for many more!

  6. Though I am not a bacon in my cookies person, the real thing that would bother me about bacon in cookies is proper storage. You don’t usually leave cooked bacon sitting on the counter so I guess you would need to refrigerate the cookies too (or eat them immediately). But your new version, without bacon, sounds great to me! I love how long they stay fresh too! The only maple extract I can find locally is artificially flavored. Do you use one that is naturally flavored?

    1. Hi Wendy, I use maple flavoring, I guess I should fix that in the ingredients list! Enjoy the recipe 🙂

  7. These cookies look delicious! Now I need to find that toffee–off to Amazon, they sell everything! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Maple is one of my favorite flavors and I could eat cookies everyday. This combination is fabulous! I just pinned! Thanks for a great recipe 🙂

  9. this cookie has the perfect flavor combinations! i would love a dozen of these, please!! toffee is one of my favorite flavors in baking and of course, cookies! 🙂

  10. I am listening loud and clear! And the “next time” I am craving cookies? Heehee I am FOREVER craving cookies 😉 and now I’ll be forever craving THESE cookies…

  11. You had me at toffee, then I saw the cookies, and they look extraordinary! I had no idea Grren & Black’s had a toffee bar. I would love that. Who needs pancakes for breakfast when we can have a stack of these?!

  12. Oh my gosh, these look amazing! It’s going to be hard to keep a bar of toffee chocolate for these, but your description convinced me! Pinning!

  13. Omg, these sound amazing. My boyfriend and I just made cornbread cupcakes with maple bacon frosting this weekend and I am definitely on a maple kick now!

  14. I’ll take bacon with anything but maple and toffee sounds even better! They look incredible… and it looks like they have the perfect chewy texture!

  15. I have a soft brown sugar cookie recipe that uses both cornstarch and maple extract in it – love it! I bet the toffee adds even more butteriness…I love this flavor profile and so many of my fave cookies are in this ‘family’. Throw in some molasses and I’m even better 🙂

    1. I’m not a huge molasses fan, it tends to take over the other flavors. But it does add such a depth when I do use it in the right amounts!! The maple is awesome with the toffee though. You described it perfectly “butteriness”!!! Thanks Averie 🙂

  16. hahaha! I felt like you were giving me the evil eye when you were talking about that bacon junk!! Sorry! I can only eat bacon on a BLT…any thing else is just wrong 🙂 And right now I would give my right arm for a stack of cookies that have that yummy chocolate in it!!!

    1. I didn’t want to call you out by name or anything…but now that you mention it yourself. Haha. These I think you can get on board with!

  17. I love maple cookies SO much Aimee. With or without bacon, I’m all in. I need to find me one of those chocolate bars, stat!

    1. I love maple cookies too! I hope you find the candy bars, otherwise just use a regular chocolate bar and extra toffee chips 🙂
