Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this recipe to top cupcakes. my rating is quick, easy and delicious
I use a large ziploc bag to basically shake and bake the bacon. Be careful with the oven temp and cook times... we don't always buy the same brand of bacon and some brands cook much faster than other brands depending on how thick/thin the slices are. Instead of cinnamon, often we'll use cracked black pepper with the brown sugar.
