College football is a big deal in my house. When I wake up on Saturday morning, the first thing I do is turn the television to ESPN. I love listening to the banter between the hosts and it’s always a treat to see which mascot head Lee Corso pulls from behind his studio chair. Some days I’ll watch the games while I work and others, I just want to sit down with a table full of food and graze all day long. I find that I’m always reaching for a combination of salty and sweet snacks so when I was asked to create some #GameDayBites using Snickers, I immediately knew what I was going to make: four ingredient Snickers and bacon cookie bars. I headed to Walmart and picked up everything I needed.

Seriously, could it get any better than this?

This cookie bar is ridiculously easy to make. All it takes is four ingredients. That’s right, four ingredients! Grab some puff pastry, sweetened condensed milk, bacon and Snickers bites.

The first thing you do is cook your bacon. I don’t have a picture of this because I think everyone knows how to do this. Then you roll out the puff pastry. Follow the instructions on the box but then do one extra thing: wet the outer edge of the puff pastry and fold the edges over 1/2 inch all the way around, creating a lip. This will contain all that chocolately, bacony goodness. Cook the puff pastry for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden.

While that is cooking, chop up your bacon and Snickers into similar sized pieces. You can pick up any kind of Snickers you want but I tend to go with convenience so the Snickers bites work best for me. I don’t have to unwrap them, which is key when I’m trying to whip up something quickly. If I can save 5-10 minutes in the kitchen, that means all the more time doing things I enjoy.

One the puff pastry is cooked just a bit, sprinkle the Snickers pieces and bacon all over. Make sure you spread them evenly as you’ll want a piece of bacon in every bite. Seriously, the combination of salty and sweet is perfect. And yes, I did eat a few pieces together to test it out.

Then you’ll drizzle some sweetened condensed milk all over this bad boy. Yes, I called it a bad boy. After all, it has chocolate and bacon.

You then cook it for a few more minutes in the oven, just to get the chocolate to soften and the condensed milk to thin and spread. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and then serve. Or in my case, eat 6 pieces and then serve. The choice is yours.

  1. Okay so I will say this – I do not like bacon. BUT I do love your creativity and the recipe totally deserve praise because of that 🙂

    • Haha, you are the second person I’ve *met* that doesn’t like bacon. I sometimes wish I didn’t….then I could lose a few pounds!

  2. OMG Sarah. These sound absolutely baconabulous. Baconriffic even. I’ll be right over.

    • Really, all I had to say was bacon in the recipe title and I could have stopped there. There were definitely baconlicioius!

  3. I really like what you made here and I really wish I could just lick my computer screen and taste it. I had chocolate covered bacon at a Renaissance Festival the day I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd child. It’s such a yummy combo.
