"Kicked" in the Mud Cupcakes
By Laurie Lenartowicz llenartowicz
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.

Laurie I made this in a fluted pan and used the only bourbon I had in the house (Wild turkey American Honey). It was sooo good, did not make icing and it was just great without it, Thanks so much for sharing next time I will make the frosting. I let it cook 35mins and did toothpick test. This cook is happy.
