Ingredients:
Chocolate Cupcakes
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk

Bacon Chocolate Frosting
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
4 slices bacon cooked crisp and cut into 1/2” pieces for garnish

Directions

Chocolate Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line a muffin pan with paper liners. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk; beat well after each addition. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. When cool, frost with Bacon Chocolate Frosting.

Bacon Chocolate Frosting:

In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat margarine and cocoa together until combined. Add milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until desired consistency is achieved. Adjust with more milk or confectioners’ sugar if necessary. Fold in chopped bacon. Frost chocolate cupcakes and top with a piece of crisp bacon for garnish.

THESE ARE WONDERFUL! A friend and I made a batch on for our best friend's birthday party last night.... She loves bacon about as much as Paula loves butter. People were super skeptical, but the folks brave enough to try them were not disappointed! I did make one addition of about about 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup to the frosting! AMAZING!
