BEST Bacon cupcake recipe out there! A couple things to mention that might help other bakers: the bacon should be CRISP. If you leave your bacon chewy and tender, the bits will blend into the cake too much and you won't tell there's bacon in there. Same goes with crumbling the bacon too fine. You want pinky-nail to dime-sized chunks in there. Also, I suggest cooking your bacon in the oven. (@400 degrees until it's dark red ~12-20 minutes depending on how thick your bacon is. Keep an eye on it!) This keeps the bacon flat and crisps it up perfectly. Crumble it after it's cooled. I am eating one of these after it spent a night in the refrigerator and they are still really good, maybe better. Really, CRISPY bacon is the key. There's nothing like biting into that salty crunch amidst sweet chocolate. Delicious!
