Elvis Inspired Cookie Cups

Welcome to cookie #3 of my holiday cookiepalooza!  If you’re just joining me, I’ve been taking the dough from my Chocolate Chip Cookie and transforming it into a variety of cookies by adding a few other ingredients to the basic dough.  Friday, I posted my Chocolate Turtle Cookies that included melted chocolate, caramel, toasted pecans, and chocolate chips.  Yum!  I have more recipes coming up this week, but today, you’re in for a real treat!!  These Elvis Inspired Cookie Cups are also made out of the basic dough and just a few additional ingredients.  When I tell people about these Elvis Inspired Cookie Cups, I definitely get some strange looks.  BUT, then people try them and they can’t get enough!!  They’re full of chopped dried banana chips, crispy bacon (YES BACON!), peanut butter, and honey!!  Don’t let the bacon scare you!  Before you think I’ve lost my mind, give them a try!

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I’ll give you some tips on how to turn store bought ice cream into these flavors or make the ice cream without a maker.
