Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cold, strong, brewed coffee
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • Candied Bacon:
  • 12 slices thin cut bacon
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp pork rub


Candied Bacon:

  1. Cover bacon with brown sugar, honey and pork rub of your choice
  2. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs, coffee, buttermilk and oil. Stir just until blended. Mix in 3/4 of the bacon, reserving the rest for garnish. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting and sprinkle reserved bacon crumbles on top.
