Are you familiar with the appetizer “Devils on Horseback”? While there are many variations, the basic idea includes dates wrapped in bacon then stuffed with some sort of cheese and/or nut. I wanted to take this time-tested recipe and use it in a new way... and what more fitting way than to reimagine this classic as a dessert? So today we have Bacon, Date, and Goat Cheese Cupcakes:

It’s a bacony cupcake with a surprise inside! Fun, easy, and definitely a way to mix things up when it comes to sweet and savory. Next time you need to bring an appetizer to an affair, bring these and see what happens.
