Chocolate Bourbon Eggnog Cupcakes: Rich dark chocolate cupcakes flavored with bourbon and topped with a chocolate bourbon eggnog buttercream frosting.
Every year my hockey team, on the last game of December have what we call Ugly Sweater Game.
We all wear ugly sweaters and most of us wear them over our uniforms for the warm up.
Sometimes the team we are playing against don’t care if we wear them during the game.
Some teams do mind.
Those are the teams that take beer league hockey way too serious.
Getting a bunch of guys to do anything sometimes is challenging. 🙂
But I must say that many of them really step up.
And it’s become quite a competition.
I get a used one off eBay every year.
This years may not stay on long since it’s HEAVILY perfumed.
Not sure I can go a whole night wearing it.
Never fear though I have way too many back ups to bring along.
So I made these thinking this is what I was going to use as my sponsored post for Rodelle.
But then changed my mind because I wanted to do a cake.
Just because tall cakes are more impressive.
These cupcakes were a huge hit with the hockey team.
If you are a chocolate lover they were described as “OMG so chocolatey”.
If you are an eggnog hater not to worry as these do not have a powerful eggnog flavor and the eggnog haters on the team still loved them.
Still if you are set against using eggnog simply substitute milk where ever you see eggnog.
Just make sure to use whole milk.
