These are not your children's bake sale cupcakes. I make these for adults who like the little kick of Bourbon and Khalua with their chocolate.
I start with a cake mix which makes it super simple and end with a homemade "adults only" buttercream icing. You could always make them without the liquor using water in the cake mix and milk in the icing but why bother? Serve them at your next adult dinner to those guests who like to imbibe.
I'm making them for Father's Day this year for the men in our lives to enjoy.
Mix together on low for 30 seconds with electric mixer. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
Bake for 20 minutes or until cakes test done with toothpick. Remove to cooling rack until completely cooled.
