These Bacon, Beer and Potato Chip Cookie Bars are full of sweet and salty flare, with all your favorite munchie-food guilty pleasures! Get ready to bake a crazily amazing batch of cookie bars!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day. We spent the weekend with some relatives and friends, enjoying the lake, nice food and beautiful weather.
The three day weekend was greatly needed — time to unwind and heal a little. After being in Miami last weekend and going straight from having a sinus illness last week to waking up with strep throat Saturday morning, I needed the rest. Fortunately, the medication worked in immediately and other than slowing me down a little Saturday, I was fine to go!

Ingredients

COOKIE

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of chocolate chunks or chips
  • 2 pieces of bacon, chopped
  • 2 tbsp beer (I used Yuengling)

TOPPING

  • 8.5 oz caramels – about 27 caramels (I used Kraft Caramels)
  • 1/4 cup cup beer
  • 3/4 cup potato chips, broken into pieces
  • 1/4 cup pretzels, broken into pieces
  • 2 pieces of bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil that sticks up above the edges.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, add flour and baking soda.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips, bacon and beer. Dough will be thick.
  6. Press cookie dough evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  7. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan.
  9. While bars are cooling, melt caramels and beer together in a pan over medium heat.
  10. Allow caramel to cook on low for about 5-10 minutes.
  11. Pour caramel mixture over cookie bars and spread evenly.
  12. Pour potato chips, pretzels, bacon, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips evenly over caramel before it cools and hardens.
  13. Microwave chocolate chips for chocolate drizzle and milk in a small bowl in the microwave until the milk begins to boil.
  14. Whisk chocolate until smooth.
  15. Allow chocolate mixture to cool for about 2 minutes, then drizzle over top of bars.
  16. Once bars are cool, use parchment paper or foil to lift them out of the pan and cut into squares.
