  1. Make cookies: Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a standing mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add sugars and beat on medium speed for three minutes.
  3. Add eggs, bourbon and vanilla and beat well.
  4. In a bowl, combine flour, oats and baking soda. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well combined. Add in toffee pieces, chocolate chips, marshmallows, pecans and bacon.
  5. Spoon 3 tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until they start to turn light brown. Remove from oven and cool on rack.
  6. Make frosting: In a small saucepan combine the butter, brown sugar and cream. Over medium low heat, stir constantly, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat immediately and cool.
  7. Place this mixture into the bowl of a standing mixture. Using whisk on low speed, slowly add in the powdered sugar. When it is all incorporated, turn up speed to medium and beat until creamy.
