This chocolate pound cake is one Ron Swanson would love. From How Sweet It Is, the dessert contains manly ingredients including bacon and bourbon. The Chocolate Pound Cake with Bacon Bourbon Frosting is an amazing course to follow waffles or other breakfast food. It's also a great snack to enjoy while re-watching Parks and Recreation.

The dark chocolate cake is described as being "decadent but not overly sweet." It is then topped with cream cheese icing that's whipped with bourbon and crunchy bacon bits. You should also add extra bacon on top.

Food blogger Jessica notes the recipe can be adjusted to remove the bacon. She lists a number of reasons why this would be the case, but none are particularly satisfying.
