Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

Sharing is caring!

Have you tried bacon and chocolate chip cupcakes? With it being bacon month and all, I have been wanting to try this combination in a cupcake. I have tasted the combination in a cookie, but not a cupcake and cupcakes are one of my favorite things in life to eat.

Did you know that August 31st is National Bacon Day?

I had been recommended this combination by my son a couple of years ago and finally tried it. I liked the results and hope you do too. I made these with boxed cake mix.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

1 boxed cake mix (white, chocolate or vanilla recommended)

8 strips bacon, cooked and drained

2/3 cup chocolate chips

2 tablespoons maple syrup

 

Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions.

Chop cooked bacon into little bits.

Add about all but 2 spoons of bacon and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the cupcake batter. You will be using the remaining bacon bits and chocolate chips for the tops of the cupcakes.

Bake cupcakes per package directions.

 

Maple Icing

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup shortening

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon milk

 

Frost cupcakes when cooled. I just used a little dollap of icing on each cupcake so that the toppings would be better represented. Add a few chocolate chips and bacon on the top of the cupcakes.

I'm so glad we're still talking bacon. I get really excited for your posts! Yes, maple and bacon are meant to be together. I can't see how cake and chocolate chips would get in the way!

They really are pretty tasty - I was a little hesitant to try the combination but it works.
