What’s better than eating bacon in front of a vegetarian? Eating Dallas Cowboys brand bacon in front of your die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan vegetarian husband. Even better than that? Eating the bacon in the form of Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes.
Let me repeat that for you.
Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes.
On Saturday, after the Great Cloth Diaper Change and the Main St. Arts Festival, Hubby and I stopped by H-E-B to do our grocery shopping for the week and pick up some Petit Jean Cowboys branded bacon. You can see our entire trip by checking out my Google+ photo album story here.
Yesterday morning, I started cooking the bacon. It cooked so well. Normally my bacon curls like crazy and cooks really unevenly, but I didn’t have that problem with this bacon at all. Check it out:
I was going to make Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes but I ran out of time before we had to leave to meet the real estate agent. So, I tossed the cooked bacon in the fridge and I finally got a chance to make the cupcakes last night.
Here’s the recipe that I used:
- 15 slices bacon, pre cooked and crumbled
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup cold brewed coffee
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 batch of chocolate frosting
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
