Foot Ball Season is just about here so get ready to get your tailgate on! Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Frosting is the perfect dessert to spoil the guys with. I absolutely plan to spoil my boys with this Chocolate-Maple-Goodness… But before I do, I will be sure to follow this advice from Baker, The Novice Chef: “There are two important ingredients for this cupcake. First being the bacon, of course. Don’t cheat yourself by using turkey bacon…or worse…pre-cooked bacon! Use good, quality bacon. Trust me, it is worth it. And also spend the money and buy the pure maple syrup. I promise you that Aunt Jemima just ain’t gonna cut it in this recipe”!
