Some time last week one of my coworkers mentioned a recipe, and the moment he mentioned it I knew I'd be making it for my Dad for Father's Day. And so was borne
Today's New Activity: Making Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Glaze Icing (and there's coffee in 'em too!)
I know you want the recipe. I know you do.
Unfortunately--being vegetarian--I didn't get the chance to actually taste the recipe in its full glory. But I did pour a tray's worth of cupcakes aside for Monkey and I before I stirred the bacon in, and those turned out to be pretty damned good!
The only issue I had was that the directions for the frosting didn't work at all. What was supposed to be frosting turned out much closer to a glaze. I'm fine with very little frosting, but I'm sure a lot of people out there would like something more substantial in the way of frosting.
Still, my Dad and Mom both liked the cupcakes a lot, so I considered it a successful new addition to the repertoire. I'm a big fan of salty and sweet in combination, so I certainly understand how it could be good in theory. Maybe I'll just have to start exploring bacon alternatives :)
