      I’ve had bacon cooked inside of pancakes as a girl. People eat bacon and pancakes so why not? I haven’t tried it mixed with waffles though.

  1. Bacon and chocolate? Together? My first thought was “eeek!” Then I reconsidered and decided “yummy!” I would kill for real crispy bacon. That’s one food item you just cannot find in Japan. Oh, they sell something called bacon, but it’s more like ham. PS: One day I want to sit in your home and eat muffins. One day. (^_^) Die tannie in Tokio

    absolutely horrified, but in bacon’s defense, the salty taste and the different textures you can get from the different cooking methods can work in anyone’s favour. Grating crispyish bacon bits could be used in almost anything (except apple strudel or milk tart. That would just be gross). Bacon cheesecake? less sugar in the filling? With a bit of spinach in the base. AH no you’ve created a monster…. 🙂 enjoy the bacon and maple cupcakes dinepop!

  3. Yuck! I’m so sick of seeing bacon everywhere! That crackling sound it makes when it’s cooking – that sickening salty smell. (Of course, I work at a restaurant that serves breakfast; maybe that’s why I hate it so. People are such brats about their bacon.)

  4. Never thought of bacon included in other foods like this but your photos sure make it look delicious. I am going to have to try some of this.

  5. I’m really really unsure about this suggestion of bacon with sweet stuff. I don’t even like the american idea of maple syrup on breakfast so I definitely don’t think I could manage this. A little sea salt / chilli / pepper – but bacon – nope one step to far for me I think!

  6. I love it!! The bacon toffee is something I have never seen but I will have to try it! Thank you for such a pleasant Monday morning read =)

  7. What a great roundup. I’m not crazy about this fad, but I know that my wife had chocolate French toast with a peanut butter syrup topped with a thick bacon at one of our favorite restaurants last year. She loved it. It makes sense in the pushing your sausage into the pancake syrup way. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed.

  8. I love bacon and so does my boyfriend! We made pancakes with chocolate chips and bacon one time and they were great!! Love this post because It is so true! Bacon is the BIG thing right now.

  9. Wow! Bacon dipped in chocolate – sounds incredible! BTW congratulations on being FP’d, I’ve just been FP’d too for the Giant Causeway post…but I’m actually sitting here in Hartbeespoort NW – looks like the South African representatives are taking over the blogging world!! 🙂

  10. Those cupcakes actually look kinda good! I might just have to try them. I love bacon, and I especially love anything salty with chocolate!

    So glad I found your blog today…it’ll give me something to read at work 🙂

  11. I have actually tried bacon dipped in chocolate. I was with friends at a Chicago restaurant and it was on the menu as an appetizer. The only reason we all tried it was basically, just so we could say we tried it. It was okay, but I won’t be making it anytime soon. Terrific blog.

  12. a friend of mine makes cheesecakes…her business is Unc’s Cheesecakes in Des Moines, IA. She makes this amazing Breakfast In Bed cheesecake that combines the flavors of maple syrup, mimosas, and of course, a touch of bacon. i’m a fan. i don’t like bacon on it’s own, but throw it into some eggs, on a BLT, or in some baked goods and i’m in.

  13. Bacon’s inherant saltiness & smokiness lends depth to just about anything you toss it in, making it a welcome guest in any recipe. I also believe it may play a part in finding a way to world peace (as long as Israel plays along).

  14. ahahahaha~~ I can hear so many guys cheering in the back of my head ^^ (Bacon? SWEET!)

    I think I’m going to have to give some of these recipes a try! Especially the cookies ^^

    I make PMS cookies; chocolate cookies with bacon, toffee’d nuts, good dark chocolate chips with large salt crystals on top. May sound odd, but they sure don’t last long!

  17. The Nutella Coated Bacon from Bell’Alimento seem so yummy. You know here in Indonesia, we can’t find such a creative recipes of bacon, we barely eat them here. I do love Bacon, but it appears that I can only find them in pizza or sandwiches here! Great post 🙂

    Es una mezcla increible , chocolate ,bacon ,y miel de Palma ,,que es tipica chilena es ezquisito ,,un viaje por el placer culinario ,,en pocas palabras es un orgasmo en las papilas gustativas ..

  19. I just made a friend of mine peanut-butter-brownie cupcakes topped with candied bacon for his birthday this weekend. And then I see this post. Awesome.

    What’s even more funny is that I’m a voluntary vegetarian. It’s been about six or seven years since I ate meat on purpose. I had to keep telling myself not to lick my fingers while I prepared the candied bacon for the cupcakes.

  20. I am horrified and hungry. Not necessarily inspired as I hate the penetrating smell that bacon leaves in my house when I fry it. One would definitely need to wear black soon after consuming these delicious fatty treats.

  21. I’m from the US, and I love bacon… but I have to say that these treats make me think that there is a definite limit to where bacon should be used. Chocolate dipped bacon? I feel queasy just thinking about it.

    Congrats on the Fresh Pressing!

  22. I’ve seen a chocolate bar by a company called Vosages with bacon in it. Apparently it is their biggest seller. I haven’t tried it yet, I’m still getting used to salt in my chocolate, which I do love. Thanks for the cool pictures. Maybe I’ll take the bacon as a dessert plunge soon.

  23. I once read something that said adding bacon or chocolate to a recipe makes it even better. I have to agree with that, especially with respect to bacon!

  24. Whoa

    Oooh – I have a recipe for Bacon Fudge …. and I thought that IT was a bizarre and wonderful thing! What a lovely collection for us pork-lovers! 🙂

    Mmmmm

  25. I can accept bacon and a maple syrup with pancakes maybe, but with chocolate noooo! I think the sweet/salty combo can be a bit dangerous. Afraid I’m a bore and will stick to bacon n eggs. Btw I shared your blog on facebook page Scottish Tart Council and tweeted it to Cerys Matthews from Catatonia, who retweeted to her followers. We like Bake Love Not War.

  26. Ahhh bacon! It makes everything better 🙂 A friend of mine is obsessed with bacon and when she got married, two of us made her a gift made of everything bacon. Bacon chocolate, bacon FLOSS, bacon band-aids, even a recipe book. Needless to say she could not be more ecstatic!

  27. My friend had a chocolate chip cookie with bacon in it once. She said it was the most amazing cookie she has ever had. She has good taste, so I’ll have to trust her.

    Great post! I can’t wait to read more!

  28. Those waffles look amazing!!! I’m not so sure about the chocolate covered bacon, but I would try it if someone else made it… =P (I do love chocolate covered potato chips!)

  29. I’m a little on the terrified side here. Then again, I suppose it’s all what you’re used to and what you’re willing to try. If pretzels and sweets go together so well, then bacon and sweets might, if it wasn’t for all the animal fat. Yuck!

  30. Even though I’m not a bacon fan, I really love adding bacon on sweet treat!!! Especially bacon waffle/ pancake and bacon icecream
    Lovely pictures
    I want to try the bacon chocolate strips

  31. My god that looks good! You would definitely make my journey a little harder to accomplish, I dont think I could resist the combination of bacon and sweets!!

    Very good stuff! keep baking

  32. Living the Paleo means I can eat bacon, and I do love indulging. My boyfriend is close to becoming a member of the bacon of the month club, he loves it so much. I’ve tried the dark chocolate with bacon pieces and maple bacon ice cream from a local shop here in C Florida. I wasn’t necessarily a fan of either but I do love the experimentation!

  33. Nutella bacon is just nuts…wait, I have some Nutella…ok I have to try it now.

    My friend has an ice cream machine and supposedly has made bacon flavoured ice cream…yeah I’d eat it.

    Cool post

    I always get made fun of because I hate bacon. Who hates bacon? I do love chocolate though. Maybe I’ll try some nutella covered bacon, and maybe I’ll fit in. Or stand out even more…who knows.

  35. Sweet and salty is one of those naughty combos that you shouldn’t really like but i do love it. one of my favorites is preztles with chocolate. I will deff be giving these a try

  36. […] All I can say to this is..Omnomnomm! Most of us quite like bacon. We have it all the time – on our pizza, with scrambled eggs, or on a sandwich. But how about bacon in baked goods?

  37. We are definitely living in the Bacon Age. My fiance has always been obsessed with it, while my soft spot has always been cheese. I’m glad that there are finally more recipes (desserts and otherwise) that incorporate his favorite food. In the Columbia City district of Seattle, Washington there is an ice cream parlor that has a flavor dedicated to Elvis which includes banana, chocolate, and bacon. My fiance is dying to try it. He almost killed me when I suggested Denny’s waffle-ice cream-bacon-syrup mixture looked gross.

    Congrats on FP! marlowesnymph.wordpress.com

  38. Oh my god! I think I’m in love! I love bacon! Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing a whole post dedicated to all the yummy ways bacon can be consumed! Thanks for sharing! I’m new to blogging and I love that there is such a huge foodie community here. If you have time, could you please share your tips/advice on blogging? Thanks so much! Here’s my blog: http://shecooksandheeats.wordpress.com/ 🙂

  39. I have noticed down here in Texas that people really love bacon on everything. I am not from this part of the country so finding out that it was hard to order filet mignon without it being wrapped in bacon was a bit annoying (I’m not into bacon much…sorry!). I cannot say for sure I’d like bacon on sweets either, but it does seems like an interesting mix, worth a try at least. Plus, the photos make it look good! Maybe you have opened me up to trying something new…

  40. eek! The chocolate covered bacon looks a little odd! I suppose in Scotland they’ve been frying Mars Bars for a while though!!

    You can buy blended milkshakes with bacon and other savory foods in them… never had one though! I prefer a good ol’ sweet treat!

  42. I’ve had bacon and chocolate together and it’s not the magical combination I thought it would be, so I’m a little skeptical of the cupcakes too…but everything looks legit!

  43. TakeBackMyBirthday

    Maple Bacon Ice Cream.
    So delicious.
    Honestly, a bit of salt makes any sweet treat truly come alive. And bacon is heaven in any form.

  44. I’ve heard of bacon combined with chocolate, but I’ve never really tried any. The last two pictures you have here are mouthwatering! It’s interesting to see how salty and sweet will work, especially bacon with something dessert like! I’ve yet to decide on what I think of it when I try one. =)

  45. I’m American and love bacon and chocolate chip cookies but can’t say that I’d want to combine those tastes! I understand the appeal of adding bacon to sweet things, I just don’t feel it!

  46. I never thought of putting bacon on deserts. Now that I wonder, It does sound wonderful!
    I recall first hearing the consept of putting ranch on tacos. At first it sounded strange, but now I love it! I am definately inspired! Those who are horrified need to think outside the box.

  47. Oh my….. bacon is a staple food of mine. I can’t imagine enjoying food as much, if bacon didn’t exist.
    I recall coming across a “French toast cupcake with maple syrup cream, topped with crispy bacon bits” recipe and it really intrigued me. Being a fan of salty/sweet recipes, I could only imagine that bacon would be an improvement on any recipe. I’ve yet to try them, but I’ll let you know how they come out. Lovely post. 🙂

  48. […] And this time from a bacon lover from the southern continent.  I’ve at least seen most of the items that she has listed, but the Nutella on bacon is a new twist.  I think I may have to try that one in the very near future.  And the bacon toffee just looks fantastic. Most of us quite like bacon. We have it all the time – on our pizza, with scrambled eggs, or on a sandwich. But how about bacon in baked goods?

  49. Coming from South East Asia, the idea seems very interesting. Since it’s a given that desserts are supposed to be sweet, I think I’d like to try these treats. The saltiness might be refreshing. Thanks!

  50. For some of the recipes I can imagine an understanding of how it could taste delicious. I don’t think I would try baking it, but if it was in front of me and someone was encouraging me to try it because it’s delicious… I’d do it ! Lol

  52. We noticed this trend too! So we decided to do a little experimentation with what we had in the cupboard and the results were varied…
    bacon+ nutella – surprisingly tasty
    bacon+peanut butter – probably the best combination, tasted like satay sauce
    bacon+greek yoghurt – just odd!
    bacon, vanilla essence + hundreds+thousands sprinkles – absolutely disgusting. recreate at your peril!

    Here at The Culinary Graveyard we can’t help but wonder if this is a trend which will feature on our site in maybe 10 years or so, as people think, WHAT THE?!!?
