Beer Cheese Super Bowl Cupcakes

Raven Higheagle


On Superbowl Sunday 2014 , I saw a recipe for Beer Cheese Superbowl Cupcakes with Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Frosting pop up in my Facebook stream from Ang’s Pampered Chef Kitchen, and knew I just had to try it.

Beer and cheese dip show up at every Super Bowl party. Beer cheese Super Bowl cupcakes are sure to be a new and unique (to say the least) addition to the same old thing. Oh, and let’s not forget that these Super Bowl cupcakes are topped with bacon and cheddar cream cheese frosting. Can you say artery clogging?
