Ingredients

  • 1 C (2 sticks) Unsalted butter
  • 1 C Light brown sugar
  • 3/4 C Sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 1/2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 C Flour
  • 2 1/4 C Quick Oats
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 C Milk chocolate toffee pieces
  • 1 C Mini marshmallows
  • 1 C Chocolate chips
  • 3/4 C Bacon pieces

For the filling

  • 12 oz Milk chocolate
  • 6 tbsp Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • 20 Large marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon (3 or 4 stripes) either on the stove top or in the oven until crisp. Set aside.
  2. Soften butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Combine softened butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat on medium speed until well combined, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, bourbon and vanilla extract. Beat until well incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, quick oats and baking soda. Stir to combine and slowly add into batter, mixing on low speed until dough starts to form.
  5. Add toffee pieces, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and bacon pieces. Mix into dough.
  6. Chill Dough 15-30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. Spoon 3 tablespoons of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until cookies start to turn light brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before moving onto a wire rack to cool.
  8. To make the sandwiches, combine milk chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds. Whisk until smooth. Add bourbon and whisk into chocolate sauce. Spoon chocolate sauce onto the backside of a cookie.
  9. Microwave the marshmallows on parchment paper, 10 at a time. Microwave for 10 seconds. Gently toast with a kitchen torch. Spoon marshmallows onto the backside of a cookie.
  10. Smoosh together two cookies, one with a marshmallow and one with chocolate sauce to create a sandwich.

Notes

Chill dough before baking.

If you are looking for an alcohol free cookie, just omit the bourbon and add 3 more teaspoons of vanilla to the cookie dough batter. For the chocolate sauce, add one extra tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. It’s is easy to substitute it out!
