The Luck 'o the Irish
I realize that St. Paddy's Day has come and gone, but it is still March ......I'm allowed one pass aren't I?? I couldn't resist sharing these amazing cupcakes......Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey's Buttercream Frosting. If you've never baked with alcohol before, this is a great introduction. Guinness Stout pairs AMAZINGLY with chocolate.....so good in fact, that the hubby probably could have devoured the cupcakes plain with only a sprinkling of powdered sugar (which is what we did right when they came out of the oven....mmmmmm....). But then you top it off with a buttercream frosting that has a hint of Bailey's in it, and wow! These puppies really did a number on my willpower.
Try them.....you'll love them.....and why bother waiting till next St. Paddy's Day....these would be yummy anytime! Check out The Culinary Chronicles for the full recipe......enjoy!
