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
