After reading a lot of favorable reviews, my curiousity was high as to see whether bacon and chocolate really do go well together. After consuming and letting about 15 friends try as well - the final consensus is *FAIL*. These make a great plain chocolate cupcake, the coffee adds a nice subtle flavor. The bacon, even when chopped very fine, is so subtle that it's not worth all the effort. People would not have known I had put bacon in it if I hadn't told them - they all said it just had a 'different' taste. And if you do get a slight chunk of something, it throws off the whole yummy taste of what a chocolate cupcake should be. So, overall - leave out the bacon, and you've got a good chocolate cupcake. I prefer the Brownie Batter + Cupcake Recipe - Now THAT"S a good cupcake that had people begging for the recipe!!
