These cupcakes get a full five stars from my family, but there are some errors in this copy of the recipe. On Food Network's website, the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of granulated and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, not 3/4 of each like this copy states. Also, the 1/2 cup of chopped bacon that goes in the cupcake batter comes out to be 5 strips. I will make these again, but this time I will use the 1/4 cup of the sugars because I think they will be even better. Awesome recipe!
A friend at work found this recipe and begged me to make them for him. They turned out great. Just the right amount of salty sweet. Don't let the combination of flavors scare you.
