I made these for Easter this year to mixed reviews. Most people's responses were something along the lines of "interesting." My 11-year-old (male) cousin really liked them. I followed the suggestion of baking the bacon instead of frying it to get it crisper, but it still was a bit "chewy" in the final product. Overall, this recipe is a really great chocolate cupcake recipe...just with bits of "stuff" inside (the bacon doesn't taste like bacon when it's in the middle of the cupcake). The bacon taste came through only via the bits I put on top. By the way, so that people could just try a bite, I made these into mini-cupcakes. It made over 80 of those, so if you're looking for a recipe that will make a large amount, this is the one for you! P.S. I used the frosting recipe from the back of the (Hershey's) cocoa powder, which I use all the time (usually with the cupcake recipe also found there), and it worked well here, as well.
