Melanie's notes for this recipe:
I love to visit Ireland and after searching found recipes that when put together create a taste of the Emerald Isle.

Combining Jameson Irish Whiskey, Bailey's Irish Cream Liquor, and Guinness...could there be a more tempting dessert?

These cupcakes are light in texture, but heavy in the chocolate department. The white cream icing reminds me of the creamy white head that Guinness is famous for.

For parties I have also made mini cupcakes.

What may at first seem to be an unlikely cupcake flavor turns out to be a real treat indeed! You can definitely taste all the different liquors in these sweet little cakes, so adjust the amounts to your liking.

Is there cream cheese in the frosting? i saw it mentioned in your despcription. I would like to try these.

No cream cheese. It was just a typo in the description; I guess I simply added cheese after cream. Sorry.
