What is more festive for St Patrick’s day then these? Chocolate cupcakes made with Guinness and topped with mint icing with Bailey’s? And they were delicious.
I followed the recipe on epicurious.com (www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Chocolate-Stout-Cake-107105) for Chocolate Stout Cake, but just made cupcakes – since – well – I love cupcakes! So follow this recipe for them. Or I have heard you could use a Betty Crocker cake mix and just add a can of Guinness instead of the oil and water? I am going to try that next year and will report back!
4 Cups Icing Sugar
3/4 Cup Butter, softened
1/4 Cup Bailey’s Original Liquor
2-3 Tablespoons Milk
1 Teaspoon Mint Extract
Green food colouring
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a hand mixer. Add food colouring until you get the colour you were looking for! Pipe onto your cooled cupcakes and lick the bowl clean – watching out you don’t catch a little buzz! Enjoy!
