Today was a co-workers birthday and when I asked him what kind of cupcakes he wanted, he had a one word answer. Beer. My co-worker is a homebrewer extraordinare, so his answer didn't surprise me. And my mind went right to this recipe. Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes...what a great excuse to make these beauties.
Chocolate Guinness cupcake, filled with a Bailey's spiked dark chocolate ganache topped with Bailey's buttercream frosting. The Guinness really adds a great depth to the chocolate, so rich. But I really think the star was the Bailey's buttercream. Or else I just make the cupcakes to eat the frosting, because the frosting really IS the best part.
A whole cooling rack was taken to work before I could eat just the buttercream off each cupcake. Really, it's the best part.
This is a definite keeper recipe. From Annie's Eats: Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes. These would be fun to serve at a St. Patrick's day party or make them for your favorite homebrewing co-worker!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
