Oh my goodness!! I made these for my sister for her birthday and I used dark cocoa powder - I was a little concerned when the batter looked almost black and the cupcakes (baked for 20 mins) were very dark. I made half with bacon and half without. I used my own chocolate fudge frosting recipe with the dark cocoa, sprinkled a little sea salt and bacon crumbles on the tops of the bacon ones - they were UNBELIEVABLE!! My sister was soooo excited!! For the buttermilk, I did substitute 1T vinegar in a 1 cup measuring cup, and added milk to fill up to the top - let it sit 5 mins. I did process the bacon - there were some larger crumbles and some much smaller. This was a wonderful, unique recipe - thank you for sharing!!!! Will be making again and again!(with and without bacon)
