Saint Patrick’s Day Treat!

I natalie_edited2was drawing a blank for a cute Saint Patrick’s Day project, so I turned to my husband’s cousin, Natalie, who’s skills in the kitchen far outshine my crafting talents.  Natalie is starting now to delve into the crafting world, too.  Oh, and I guess I should mention, she’s only seventeen!

 

I gave Nat the task of coming up with a Saint Patty’s Day treat, and providing pictures, and I must say, I’m impressed.  Thanks, Nat, for bailing me out and for coming up with a great post!  I’m making these today!

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

 Description: These cupcakes taste like a real Irish coffee! To create them, I placed yellow cupcakes in coffee mugs, sprinkled the cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, and topped them with whipped cream frosting and a cherry. Serve these to adults with a spoon for dessert!

natalies-irish-coffee-cupcake-edited Ingredients:

 1 batch yellow Cupcakes, (made without paper liners)

 1/3 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, or more to taste  

 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder

Whipped Cream Frosting

Chocolate-covered espresso beans or cherry (optional)

Directions:

1. Place 1 cupcake inside each mug, pressing it down to the bottom.

2. Whisk together liqueur and espresso powder until espresso dissolves. If it doesn’t dissolve, heat mixture briefly in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until it does. Pierce each cupcake several times with a bamboo skewer or toothpick. Brush liqueur mixture over each cupcake.

3. Pipe a large swirl of frosting on top of each cupcake, filling up the remaining space in the mug or cup. Top with a chocolate- covered espresso bean or cherry. Cupcakes are now ready to serve. Don’t forget the spoon!
