Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cupcake pans with 18 paper liners. Whisk together 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Fold in 2/3 cup (10 slices) chopped, cooked crispy thick-cut bacon. Divide batter among liners and bake at 350 degrees for 21 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Melt 1 cup milk chocolate chips in microwave and cool slightly. Beat 1 box (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar, 2 sticks softened unsalted butter and 1/4 cup milk until smooth; beat in 1 teaspoon maple extract and chocolate. Once the cupcakes are cool, spread frosting over cupcakes. Garnish with additional chopped bacon.
