Remove 2 strips of bacon and place on paper towel. Sprinkle remaining piece of bacon evenly with ½ teaspoon brown sugar. Bake for 3 minutes or until sugar melts. Set aside to use as garnish.

Whisk together browned butter, remaining sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Crumble the 2 strips of bacon and fold into batter, along with 2/3 of chopped TURTLES pieces. Spoon into prepared cups, filling 2/3 full.
