Last weekend I was at Syrup enjoying my Ghirardelli chocolate chunk pancakes and a side of bacon and it was delicious! So I started thinking how good this would be in a cupcake. I took my chocolate cupcake recipe and added some maple syrup and bacon bits to it. Then I added maple syrup to my standard buttercream frosting. Lastly, I garnished it with a bite of chocolate covered bacon. Call me crazy- but it is awesome! Enjoy!
