Super Bowl Cupcakes

Tauna Bowman


I found this recipe in the newspaper and just had to try it. These cupcakes are so moist, and they are not sickening sweet like most chocolate cake is. The Stout really tones down the sweetness and allows for the frosting to accent the cupcake. Toppings are an option if you need that extra sweet or salty kick. I like them plain with or without the frosting!!
