Chocolate Eggnog Cupcakes
Do you love eggnog? In this house everyone does. I grew up with it as an everyday staple during the holidays. My husband did too, which is why we always have it in the fridge from the moment it becomes available until we can’t find it anymore. The kids love it with breakfast & then of course the hubs & I have it with a little cocktail in the evening on the weekends once the day calms down. It’s the perfect holiday flavor – which is why I just had to use it to make these Chocolate Eggnog Cupcakes.
Because I was short on time I decided to go with my standard box cake mix. There is nothing wrong with that if it comes down to having cupcakes or not having cupcakes. Always choose to have cupcakes! Then I whipped up my super easy, 3 ingredient frosting using International Delight Nog & then topped them off with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Super easy & oh my word they are delicious.
These made the perfect little treat to pull out over the holiday weekend. I can’t wait to make some more. I’m thinking these would be great for leaving out on Christmas Eve this year instead of cookies. I’m sure Santa would like something different – right?!
