Eggnog Cupcakes


Tonight after dinner my husband looks over at me with these puppy dog eyes that said, "Pweeese make some dessert!" I have been wanting to try a new holiday recipe for a while, so I hopped up and started my Kitchen Aid...

Eggnog Spiked Cupcakes
These little delights were made with actual eggnog, a splash of dark rum and freshly grated nutmeg. They are topped with an eggnog cream cheese frosting and holiday flair.

I am not a fan of eggnog...the thick, chalky and bitter drink does nothing for my palate. But, my husband LOVES it and this was for him....

I have to admit, though, these cupcakes blew me away! The nutmeg cut the sweetness in the moist cake and the touch of rum made the frosting pop. Eggnog may be my new favorite...just in cupcake form! ;)

I made no such eyes and I did not ask for them like a 3 year old. They were however AWESOME and thank you for making them :) Please do not continue to stretch the truth in future blog posts, dear.
