Oddly enough, Bacon and Chocolate actually go really, really well together.

Step 1: Ingredients for Cupcakes:

8 Slices of Bacon *I live in Canada, and I just used thin packaged bacon, but whatever kind of Bacon you use, make sure it can get really crispy.
1 Cup of Unsalted Butter *This is a must, since the Bacon itself is so salty.
½ Cup of Cocoa Powder
¾ Cup Water
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1/2 Cup well-shaken Buttermilk
2 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Flour
½ tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
1 Cup of Dark Chocolate Chips or Wafers

Enter these in the Instructables Bacon Contest! Mmm!
These are not disgusting, they will solve world-conflicts.
I'll be honest - I'm a little repulsed by the whole bacon-chocolate thing. The idea of that combination makes me want to vomit. But at the same time, so many people seem to dig it that I am very intrigued. As a vegan, I will never, ever try this. Anyone want to offer a description of the taste? Sweet and salty, like chocolate pretzels?
Yeah you got the idea. Most vegans are closet meat eaters anyway, it's like family value republicans who cheat on their wives, those with the most values ussually turn out to be the biggest pervs, since you like to proclaim your veganess on the internet in bacon instructables I assume you are very vegan and eat a lot of meat behind closed doors, so have at it and tell us how it tasted.
TRY substituting BACOs for bacon. Bacos are tvp, not meat,but taste just like bacon. I like it better. <br>ed
It's kind of the same taste as a chocolate covered pretzel. You could try cherub chips and tofu-bacon. As a vegan, you wouldn't be able to try this recipe for the cupcake because there are eggs, butter and buttermilk.
Yum! What is better than chocolate or bacon, both of them!!!
Thumbs up - never enough bacon recipes, esp bacon + sweets...yum! =D

Regarding the effect of sifting: it would be great if recipes could give weight as an alternate measure for something like this. I know not everyone has a kitchen scale, but for those who do, it would eliminate volume errors resulting from things like sifting.
I agree, however, if the recipe is telling you to measure your flour, icing sugar or what not, and then to sift it, you will be OK.<br><br>If the recipe does not call for it, you may have to do some math figuring out how many grams/ounces etc equal to the amount of cups you are using.<br><br>I can tell you, since I just made these cupcakes, it's OK to measure it out and then sift it. No damage done here.
Want to make these for my brothers Birthday, how many will the recipe make?
One batch makes 24 cupcakes<br><br>You're brother will forever thank you :)
Thanks! He LOVES bacon!!
Who Doesn't?! :)<br>I have heard people using faux-bacon or Turkey Bacon instead...
If you do make these, and use another kind of bacon, let me know. <br>I was going to try using large cut bacon, but I only had slices on hand
TIP regarding sifting flour: Sifted flour is less volume than unsifted flour so if you don't sift the flour, you may be adding too much flour which can also negatively effect the results. <br>Baking is not like cooking and requires more accurate measurement.
For the Buttermilk, you have 1/s Cup. Is that a typo perhaps? Should be 1/4, 1/3 or 1/2 Cup well-shaken Buttermilk? <br><br>Sounds yummy and I can't wait to try!<br><br>Chaz
Sorry, I'll fix this, it should 1/2 Cup
