Back on Valentine’s Day, I made a simple, yet sweet and savory treat for my sweetheart – chocolate-dipped bacon, which I wrote about at My Home Farm.

I tend to think most things are improved by either chocolate or bacon, sometimes both. So not surprisingly, as I perused the May 2011 issue of Cooking Light magazine and saw a recipe for chocolate-chocolate chip muffins (page 100), I thought to myself, “those would be so much better with bacon!” And, when bacon comes from your own barnyard, like it does here, it elevates a plain-old muffin to something very special. Give these a try (I altered CL’s recipe slightly):
