I had such high hopes for this recipe! I made it for a girls' weekend, thinking it would be just the thing - we all love chocolate, bacon, and coffee. I followed the recipe exactly, and found the batter VERY difficult to work with - extremely runny. I would suggest using a container with a spout to pour into the cups. I also thought the bacon was a lot of extra work and didn't add anything extra to the cupcakes, just weird little chewy bits in them (and I crumbled them very small). And while the batter was very runny, the finished cupcakes were pretty dry. Interesting idea and I'm glad I tried them, but I won't make them again - I'd just as soon make cupcakes from a box, which I never do. No one who tried them really liked them, even before they were told the ingredients. Their only saving grace was the chocolate ganache icing from this site.
