I don’t know about you but I still have chocolate from Christmas in my cupboards. Normally, it would have all been eaten by now, but since some of the goods have liqueur in them, they’ve been off-limits to the kids. That’s why I decided to use some of them in these Coffee and Baileys Cupcakes.
The idea came to me when I was figuring out what I could do with all the truffles that were just sitting there. I know for myself, I enjoy a little Baileys in my coffee from time-to-time. That’s when I decided to make a coffee cupcake and stick one of these truffles in the middle. Boy, am I glad I did!
These cupcakes turned out perfectly (and I’m not a cupcake fan), especially with the Chocolate & Baileys Frosting on top. I cheated with the frosting and bought a can of Whipped Chocolate Frosting and added some Baileys to that. The cupcakes weren’t for anything special, so if I was sharing them with others or bringing them somewhere, I definitely would have made homemade. Either way, I didn’t hear any complaints. Coffee and Baileys = a perfect combination!
