Worried about trying to actually bake with bacon? Wait until your cupcakes, cookies, or cakes are out of the oven and then amp them up with Bacon Frosting ($7). True to its name, this dark-red bacon-flavored frosting will add a blast of smoky sweet flavor to any culinary delight — just be careful, lest you be tempted to eat it all by itself like the weird bacon man is doing on the tube.
'Tis the season for eating stuff that you'll regret come summer, and since you're going to eat some diet un-friendly food anyway, why not gorge yourself on these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies ($20/6-pack). These chocolate cookies are spotted with what appear to be Reese's Pieces and chunks of bacon, giving them a rich, savory-yet-sweet flavor that you'll remember far into 2012.
