Could there be a more perfect St. Patrick’s Day dessert than these Guinness Cupcakes? They give you twice the amount of Irish goodness with both Guinness Stout and Bailey’s Irish Cream. If Ireland has been calling you then these St. Patrick’s Day themed cupcakes are your answer.
I’ve been wanting to try adding beer to my signature chocolate cupcake recipe for a while. Since St. Patrick’s Day is only a few weeks away I figured there couldn’t be a more perfect time. Guinness Stout is a rich, dark stout that’s perfect for baking. It added a nice subtle flavor to my chocolate cupcakes that was absolutely delicious.
Now a rich dark chocolate stout cupcake needs an equally boozy frosting. My Mudslide Cupcakes have a swirl of both Bailey’s and Kahlua frostings so it was kind of a no brainer. Bailey’s Irish Cream Frosting is the only worthy partner to top a Chocolate Guinness Cupcake. Wouldn’t you agree?
The two Irish alcoholic beverages were perfect partners and made these St. Patrick’s Day themed cupcakes complete.
