Super Bowl Cupcakes


 

These cupcakes are crowd pleasers.  Plain and simple.  Whip a batch up, and watch them disappear.  So moist and delicious, even non-beer drinkers will gobble these down. If you make them for a party like I did, you may get random people coming up to you offering to have your children… erm… just fair warning. I mean, what would you expect when mixing alcohol and chocolate? In the words of one of my favorite people ever: “Yes. Just yes.” There’s not much else to say about that :)

1 egg
1/3 cup sour cream
For the Frosting

For the drizzle:
1/2 c. semisweet chocolat chips
1Tbsp good irish whiskey

1)  Preheat oven to 350 F.

4)  In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda.

5)  Add sour cream and egg and mix well (don’t worry, it’ll still be dry).
