    First, those look awesome!! Can’t wait to make them. Second, what do you think of Irish cream instead of kaluha? And third, what kind of bacon did you use? Thick or thin? Thanks

      I think this would be great with Irish Cream–yummy! Try it out and let us know. 🙂 We used a thicker cut of bacon but you could use whatever you prefer.
