Bacon and Goat Cheese Pops

You might have noticed that I have a bit of a thing for bacon. There were those sweet bacon-y treats like the bacon, bourbon and peanut butter cookies and the bacon caramel popcorn. And then there was bacon in sandwiches and soups and soups. Oh and remember that last post about beer ice cream? Ya, that might have been was made with a bacon maple ale.

I think I might have a bit of a bacon problem.
