I still think the concept could be successful, but not the way I went about it.
These I made on a whim. My friend was having a little get together, so what a better way to be able to try a new recipe, AND get a good chunk of them out of my house ASAP.
A couple of things I did wrong:
1) Used a box mix. If it's not chocolate...don't do it!
2) I used veggie bacon. The things you will do when your bestie is a vegetarian. Not only did
they taste like crunchy salt sticks; they looked like dog treats. Do yourself a favor and tell
your veggie bff to pick off her bacon...or better yet, just don't put one on hers.
This was my inspiration: French Toast and Bacon Cupcakes
Nope. Still looking.
Cause even vegetarians don't want to eat doggy salt sticks.
The finished product.
Well, at least I can say they incited conversation even if they weren't the hit of the party. One day I'll try these again. I love breakfast foods, and I'm thoroughly convinced that with the proper ingredients they would make excellent cupcakes.
